Object of Desire This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Flick!
Swish!
Scamper.
Plumed whip flitters behind me.
The Chase.
Up, Down.
Around, Across.
The Chase.

Heart beating through my skin.
Pump Pump
Wheeze.
Pump Pump
Wheeze.

He stole it
He stole
Her.
Took my love from me
When the night had claimed my
consciousness.
So close.
I can see.
Her! There she is!
Her creased leather cap
Like an elegant Parisian beret.
Skin smooth, bronze sheen.
I must behold her!
Embrace her to my chest!
I leap!
I grasp.
My darling acorn of the goddess of oak,
You are mine.
