The Pencil Artist This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By , Yarmouth, ME
As I dance across the page
I leave my glistening gray trail
I am an artist
dressed in yellow
with my red hair in a bun
on top of my head

GO
I race across the white field
I do loops, sharp turns, and even leap
into the air
I twirl across and back
I glide
I swirl
I jump
back to the start
all over again in the next lane
over and over
I never tire

I flip on my head to cover my tracks
so nobody sees my mistakes
I go to the locker room
to sharpen up
and to rest in my case
and to prepare for the next period
