by India Hicks
Grade 9

I’m a pianoforte alongside wandering fingers,
Uptight building running with water,
An unfolding narrative descending among roses, 
Milky Way shooting through the dark,
Weightless wind, expanding in and out of confinement, 
Blistering laced memories, 
Adrenaline blessful, O so aghast,
This spiralled mop pinned concrete,
I’m a painted Mona Lisa smile.
