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

Every day,
I'm arrested in some way
by your eyes.

Green, jade,
meanly jaded,
wild under boredom,
watching like a foxy
fox.

Lazy, crazy spirals in
your hazy gaze of interest.

Wild at your voice –
grating, smoothing, touching
over words and rocks, it laughs at
me.

Golden tones,
Copper hair that ruffles without wind.
Your sin,
a devil for speed.

I love it when
you laugh because of
me.
