A Drop of Sweet

found an old wrapper
in my jeans
pocket,

from the werther’s drop
i coughed up when
you were

choking on floods
of vomit,

i know the sweet’s
fleeting,

but i’ve got
another

fully,
wrapped

stashed safe and
warm for
you

like a stick of
butter

seems i’m never too
full for sugar,
dear lover.

..now let me wrap you in these sticky lips and under covers

Drugstore Chocolates

ever share a song
that brings
shivers

to
another..

only to have them cringe
like you fed them
body odor?

ever point out injustice
to guy with gavel
in his back
pocket?

every steal a kiss only to
wish you could
return it
with

the box of drugstore
chocolates?
