The Double Helix Cage This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

I am incarcerated
Even though I am the victim
The perpetrators: thousands upon thousands of nucleotides
The double helix bars, limiting me, bent
But are never broken
Why does he have a taller cage?
Why is her cage thinner?
Each in our own prisons
We are all incarcerated
