mustard love This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

i asked you to pass the rubber bottle to me

across

a

rushing

moat

of

nervous

thoughts.

my elastic pupils kept
springing back to your hairline.

(don't notorious criminals always
return to the scene of the crime?)

my black fingers clash with your white ones
like piano keys only a half-step apart.

that's why i fell in love with you:

because of the mustard.
