Mom always said
"Don’t eat so much sugar,"
but what’s a kid to do
when the promising pop
of thin pink bubblegum
stretches over his baby teeth,
awaiting the immediacy
of his curious, sensitive tongue
and the incoming pressure
of deep hot breaths?

That lurid burst
like sweet hard cherry candy

Can I just say you write such beautiful, beautiful poetry! I'm an english major as well and it is so inspiring to see everything that I am aspiring to be in a kindred spirit.


Thank you so much!  It’s always great to meet a kindred spirit.  Best of luck to you on your journey!
