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

I traced the contours of her body with my black dripping pen
Outlined her voluptuous shape til my fingers bled
Drew over the same linear image untiltime took its way
And her body slowly decomposed intobutterflies and hay
Ashes and dust floated away in the wind
Stepped back to examine the masterpiece and I chagrined
Artistically sophisticated and perfect to my demise
Feverishly explored our creation with a composer's eyes
And that's when I realized with a gasp
She left behind a map
