Wish you had a Portal Gun?"Well, well, well, if it isn't Miss. Smith."
Mr. Mason leers at me, stalking up to my poster. Ah, if only I could test this moron. It would be so entertaining to see how quickly he would go insane....
"What's the little psychopath cooked up this time?"
His unoriginal comment jerks me from my dreams of torment and torture. I look up at him, so many comments, insults, quips, and observances I could throw at him to shut him up. I will never comprehend why they would let a gym teacher judge a science fair. Three times. Winning isn't an issue, even though I know I would if I had actual intelligent beings judging. This project, though is mostly for my own entertainment. And the advancement of science, of course. Every thing I do goes to the advancement of science.
One of the other judges, Mr...... Johnson, I think? Epic last name; checks his clipboard. "Lizzy Smith, is it? What have you got to show us today?"

You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
