Plastic and Staples This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By , Sparta, NJ
I squint.
I smear.
I rub.
I buff.

Is that you?
Underneath all that wrapping
The shiny plastic, the crumpled tinfoil,
The brown paper, the tape, and staples?

I am not seeing
A real being
Unless I peel away
All these layers
