Dad and the Slingshot This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

October 27, 2009
Dad walked into the room
laundry done, but thong
in hand. “Hey!”
he announced, “Someone left their slingshot
in the dryer!” He flung
it across the room, past the gaping faces
of my relatives
at the family reunion.
Need I mention
I'm the only girl in the family?
