The Wedding This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine. This work has won the Teen Ink contest in its category.

By
The Procession began – I walked
down first – the Shoes clacking
with each Step – I stopped on
the Marker – the fellow Maids
followed – along with the Bride –
Do You take – the Strap pinched –
my Heel ached – that unnecessary
little Toe throbbed – I do –
how long is this Speech – I do –
The Train chugged outside – Pictures
on the beach – I knew a Blister
was coming – the happy Couple smiled –
then it was the Group’s turn – Me –
Hike back to the hall – the Pair
now One – to dance and celebrate –
the Buckle undone on the left –
now the right – wanna Dance?
