The Accusation MAG

By Emma L., Congers, NY

     you are
about as real as a prom-night Promise
but not nearly as pretty as the corsage
blushing with the appropriate shame
until I can’t see your freckles
like the shaking girl
hiding under a sea of
Sheet-Like Expectations

I love this so much. It's such a simple poem, but it has so many insinuations and subtleties. Amazing job, keep it up!!!! :)
