reunion via list This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

i am playing tetherball
with my cerebral cortex
simply trying to comprehend
what your deal is
i can't wrap my head around
all your syntax errors or
your internal malfunctions
now you're gone
and i think i may be
so confused
that everything appears crystal clear
like when the water in the shower
is so hot that it's cold
i saw you on a list
that i signed and it's funny
because we haven't been that
close in ages; only a few
crowded lines away
from holding hands
your R sliding into my Y
creating old sparks to sizzle
and then igniting the paper
leaving us in ash where we started
and leaving me puzzled
as usual
