Shopping for love This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Is love ever considered gratis
Or is there an unspoken return policy
Who to ask
Operator: can you find me love's manager
Certainly a well-spoken man, woman, or neither
To be running such a large array of department stores
splattered across the world in humans and non-humans
alike
Put me through the line
Because I have a shopping cart of love's embodiments that
I'd like to return
For someone who wants or needs it more
than me
I've so much stock, it seems unjust and
I think I'd like the savings back, you see
That porcelain pig took many years to feed
