The Other Side This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

A nobody. Has hope. Spontaneous.
Repeatedly naive. Denoted
worthless before their performance.
Assumptions
cleared. Bad beat befalls
upon them against the angle adversary.
Resolute sable ink.

Prism perspectives.
To make decisions many cannot. Ceasing chirps. Will never

exist on the evolving
hierarchy. Like porcelain becomes a
bleary windowpane.

Deep. Dark. Cautionary. One question, though: Why did you write "resolute sable ink"?

1. a childhood memory 2. The minority figure in "The Other Side" does not yield to the majority which is similar to how ink is permanent.

I should probably clarify: I was confused specifically by the "sable" part. This is a sable.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sable There was supposed to be a link there, but apparently all TeenInk comments are plaintext. Dangit.
