it would really be nice This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

I sat,
catatonic,
on the dusty couch
that I had dragged
two miles from the dump.

It still smelled like cat piss.

Someone had lit a fire,
a rarity in this house,
but I didn't notice
until the room got darker
because no one had added more wood
to keep it going.

I almost shouted for the servant,
but then I remembered
that it was me who lit the fire,
me who should have added more wood,
and I live in an apartment
so I didn't have a servant.

It would be nice, though.
