Catch-Phrase This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Words
Trapped in my brain
Fight their way down my spine
Flood my arms
And reach my fingers

Jumbled up
And scrambled
I hear them sigh
And murmur to each other
Grumbling

At a white screen
I try to listen
Try to hear them
And write the recording
Real

On their way out
They yank and break
Letters on tiny feet
Fall over
And are trampled

And so
Fingers push wrong keys
Ears do not hear properly
The images in my retina
Freeze

So when the murmurs die
And fingers stop
I read the page
And see stanzas of
Clichés
