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

Real communication has no grammar but
rhythm and rhyme
because “Memory knows before
knowing remembers”
and you can change your mind

So when she says, “It's so much beautiful”
I say she's more right than wrong.
Formal education
can't stifle my imagination
but still I play along

There is so much beautiful in the world,
it's true
though I forget sometimes
formatting essays
and wasting my time

Punctuation's
killed a nation
of dreamers that believe
in communication that transcends
the education we receive
