Why, I'm Flattered This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By , Brooklyn, NY
they shirk off compliments
needlessly like clouds
rain their droplets
flattery and envy
swirled with jealousy
hidden behind the refrain(s)
of
“You look great!”
and
“Awesome!”
tainted and accepted
trickling like poison
dripping into
veins of satisfaction.
