2020-09-27 – A Drop of Sweet

found an old wrapper
deep in my jeans
pocket,

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

choking on those floods
of work related
vomit,

i know the sweet’s
so fleeting,

but i’ve got
another

fully,
wrapped

stashed deep in my
back pocket

++++

for you,

my never too busy
for a hit of
sugar

lover.

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

2020-09-26 – Drugstore Chocolates

ever point out the part
of a song that brings
you shivers

to
another..

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

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

ever steal a kiss
only to wish
you could

return it
with..

++++

half-empty box
of drugstore
chocolates?
