Fluids, Forces
By Sam Armstrong
Teen Scribe

The Water ran in lots of Places,
lollopped while the fishes’ faces
sought a fair respite
from teasing tides and
unrequited nights.

But the Motion burned them deep within
scathing silver scales and fins
leaping in their livestock veins
so shivers take the place of reigns
and rain will never touch this Place
we’ve made

The Liquid made a Home for them,
so better flats they soon condemned.
Living underwater
ruled by Forces heard
but never seen.

But the Ocean yearned to keep them in
paving ways by Whales skinned
Seeping in their livestock veins
so whispers take the place of change
and Pain will never touch this Place
we’ve made

The Water ran in lots of Places,
and for the Life of them,
the fishes never could
save Face.

Currents
By Sam Armstrong
Teen Scribe

The Wind swept its soul across the town,
and watched as the people
gave him disgusted looks in passing.

He had been around
long enough
to know that only small children
appreciated his presence,

although sidewalks occasionally
tipped their worn hats
to his methods of cleaning their many faces.

He had been around
long enough
to see how raptors used his Currents
as an agent when they snatched up prey,
and many trees near homes meant his breath wasn’t wanted.

But what were Homes to the Wind?

What was Home to an Unseen?

He had been around
long enough
to notice the times when he simply
wasn’t
there.
