can’t, she said,
“Forever is reserved,”
I begged, I’ve settled for far less,
“It’d end badly, my child, and
you’re so sweet!”
I’m sweet?
Candy is sweet.
Strip off quickly
the wrapper.
Shove it in your mouth.
Consume it,
Possess it
as you have my body and mind.
Let it melt in your mouth,
only the skeleton left,
sticky, worthless,
Then throw what’s left in the dirt -
Or be kind
and throw me in the bin
Never to stick to anyone(’s foot)
ever again.
I only wish
I could apologise
for ruining your teeth.
