wedding number four This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By M.McK, louisville, KY

you know, standing there in that dress,
sweat collecting in little pools in my bra,
i felt beautiful.
and the makeup and the smiles covered up so much
i wasn't about to ruin this for the lucky bride.
so i smiled at them, and even talked a little
when they asked me questions.
i kept it together.
but standing there in the shade, all i wanted was out.
out of the car,
out of the shoes,
out of the dress,
and out of my skin.
