Hamlet revisited This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By Anonymous, Attleboro, MA

I liked you better when you were overweight;
when you didn't wake up at 3 a.m.,
start your car outside my window,
and go to the track for four hours.
I liked you better when you weren't
constantly giving me tips on how to
follow in your nine-percent body fat
footsteps and when you ate more
than just frozen peas and Cheerios,
and when you weren't so grumpy
and introverted and when
you didn't buy clothes from the
young boys department at J.C. Penney.
I liked you better when your teeth
weren't falling out and people
didn't ask if you have cancer
