Sausage, Biscuits, and Gravy This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Sausage, biscuits, and gravy.
I scrape off the gravy,
nibble the biscuit,
and mutilate the sausage.
Playing with food is for children,
but I build a boat.
A stale biscuit,
sinking in the horrendous white gravy,
being pelted by bits of sausage.
I sit back and examine my semi-edible
work of art.
It's almost as ugly as it is bad-tasting.
All is lost.

I was smiling after I read this. Relatable, and I love the fun tone!
