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

She was rushed
Through the crowds of Time Square
Lights flashed
And sirens cleared the way,

Frost formed on her
Eyes fluttering behind black frames,

With no space, the
Confetti was swept from the table,

Gently, they laid her
Down in a bed of broken festivity,

A sudden jostling of destiny
Halted her hurried preparations of cheer,

And the spoon froze
In a bowl of raw cookie dough.

Very nice imagery, interesting how it plays into the theme of all types of movement and then I like the end lines how you chose "frozen" after all that motion.
