No Pity, Please This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Dad doesn't see much
blurred shapes, bright lights
on a good day
maybe the outline of his grown daughter

He used to read aloud to his daughter
bedtime tales. Then chapter books came
lengthy, tiny print, Ms. Rowling's “Goblet of Fire”
by the seventh chapter, their roles switched
She began to read to him

She wasn't the greatest reader
She tried
But after the first week of him falling asleep
when it was supposed to be her in that role
she kicked him out
and read alone.
