22 January 2011


the selection box of sweets,
each sweet word of yours coated

with high-grade confectionary, laced
over with script in darker
chocolate, thick with
corn syrup and chemicals, the
rainbow tints of candied
creams, gussied up with red
foil and cellophane wrappers

morse code of chocolates: sweets
for the sweet--a hundred
corny valentine's day jokes in
sugary reverberation
til the last mouthful is
swallowed down
