Adolescence

By
More by this author
This black nail polish
coats split, rigid thumbnails
that plead for mercy

A comb whimpers while
his fingers interweave with
her flexuous locks

And doors slam before
blaring music resonates
across the floorboards

Forget about your
feelings, and dazzle those friends
of yours with a joint

How did we get here
when just months ago
we knew compliance?

We’re just some young teens
who don’t know that rebellion
could mean real danger
