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

The world is just a bunch of
forks and spoons and knives:
washed and rewashed
the meth heads eating with
the big tycoons
'cause the waitress,
in her scuffed white keds
(her eyeshadow a shade of dayglo)
is a bit like God, leveling the ground
with her objective coffee refills.
The tax collectors and the prostitutes,
the woman at the well and the one
caught in adultery,
the starving artists and mailmen and teachers,
all of them eating in the
same sun-warmed booth,
with the same
chipped cups.

I think I just found a little piece of truth wrapped in a tortilla shaped like life. And it is this poem.
