Rainy Dialogue This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
You stand in the rain, frowning.
Your eyes water your cheeks.
I’d ask what’s wrong,
but you won’t tell.

I tie my tongue in a pretty knot.
I cannot answer
a question never asked.
If you stand in the rain, you too would frown.
And I’ll be amazed if dry your face stays.

Don’t be mad.
Don’t step in mud.

It’s a puddle of dirt.
