After­glow

EMILY MAL­COLM, GRADE 12

The Hamilton Spectator - - OUR PULSE -

The fresh taste of sushi: salty and smooth it moves me back to the mar­ket in Italy where men un­load fish with agility. On hot sum­mer nights the lo­cals wan­der the street out­side my win­dow. Screams from par­ty­go­ers make my heart­beat pound in my chest. Florence does not sleep; I have had no rest tonight. The wa­ter kisses the shore more gen­tly at night than it did be­fore.
