Writers' Showcase

by Alex Andy Phuong

Juneteenth is finally here!
First time ever in 2021.
A new era has begun.
Some grownups
Still act like teens,
And "teenths"
Involve more than dates
Beyond the number 13,
So watch out,
Or be like that creepy kid
From The Omen,
And summon the courage
To live in a whole new world
That now includes a live-action
Version of Aladdin.
