dessert

Smooth milk-bottle skin

salted caramel sauce eyes butterscotch

snaps me to attention

sweet candy heart in my throat

Sucked on teeth skin

oh, I shouldn’t

s t u c k

to the roof of my mouth

soft black curls like liquorice

ribbons threaded through my fingers

your lips sticky jubes

raspberry

tongue peach

just one more bite

sugar crystalized sweat

l i c k e d

you are no good for me.
