Wrapped Around Your Finger This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine. This work has won the Teen Ink contest in its category.

Twirling in delight when uncoiled from
my spool,
by your gentle fingers,
I am a ribbon.
Your hands are doves.
And I come to adore them when
they shape me,
carefully, into a bow.
But when
the doves become hawks, and
the bow falls, lopsided,
I long not to cling so tightly to the spool
at your disposal.
