Um, you know what, I…I think you’ve had enough.
C’mon, dog, that’s…that’s a wall. Do you even know where you are right now?
Dude, how many drinks did you even have?
Can’t even sit up straight.
No, don’t even try to hide and then sneak into the kitchen and grab another drink. YOU’VE HAD ENOUGH.
This is unbelievable. You’re out of control right now.
You disgust me. Look at yourself.
Just…go sleep it off, you filthy drunk.
- Me: I'll just read to the end of this chapter and then I'll go to sleep.

- Book: Don't leave me.

This sestina is another piece written in our Writing and Publishing Apprentices class for high school students. Enjoy Zoe’s sestina!
I am fascinated by the shadows of our fingers
Beautiful when they differ but when they match – electric
Your hands waved goodbye and caught tears when you cried
Your fairytale had taken a stormy twist
But looking back for that second
Made you believe in fate
I fucking love word of the day.
