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

Why do you insist on buying me the Skittles
when they just cascade from the red bag
like swollen buttons?
And the small Hi-C Orange drink
that is so large I won't get through half of it?
You got right with the bracelet;

I wear it every day like I'll die without it –
But food that I have no chance to finish?
The Skittles wrapper just became a souvenir that you were here.
