Cigarettes and Paint This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Cigarettes and paint
These are the marks of her

Her short platinum hair
today dipped in purple
tomorrow dyed blue
These are the marks of her

Her carousel pen makes
swirly script
and large letters
These are the marks of her

Her love of Paris
Her accent in French class
The lamp by her bed
and the posters on her wall
These are the marks of her

The cans of Dr. Pepper
on a cold November night
These are the marks of her

The icy Monster
every day in French
This is a mark of her

Art class
Pencils, paint, and scratch boards
These are the marks of her

Every little tease about Sean
the references to Supernatural
and the endless demand for food
These are all marks of her

Her name perfectly matches
the gleam in her eyes
This is a mark of her
This is a mark of Kat
