Glacier Heart This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.


my stomach rattles
like a handful of pills

i plunge into the water
and see
you

your eyes – gray glistening orbs
like crystal balls

i blink
and you disappear

emerging
lungs empty
i am cleansed
and suddenly dry

but a crevasse
has formed
in my glacier heart

i dip a toe back in and
inhale
exhale
repeat

are you my future?
