Sugar on Me

Sweet Sugar

put away your

Skittles

chasing rainbows

in a bag…,

deliciously, twisted

red

Twizzler

better than licorice

let me

into your Smarties

candy dish…,

Let me

fluoride away

those Swedish fish,

Hot Tamales,

Sour Patches, or Jelly Belly beans…,

Starburst-ing,

Lemonheads off of Dum-Dums

at any means to be tasted or seen…,

Let me floss

your tastebuds

from those Jolly Ranchers

to indulged

on this

LifeSaver

name Me,…unwrapped.

Up to Sleep

Goodnight Midnight

kiss my dreams

awake

tonight.

Brightly eyed

covering a

gravitational

pulling

levitating

slowly as

my star

glows

dim

to shine

amongst a

fleet of

starship troopers

warped into

my

frontal lobes

speeding

pressures

to press

overdrive.

Nope!

My own

airlifting

at my speed.

Stretching to

push through

the exigency

of Newton’s law…

floating astronauts

finds

nobody

without an oxygen

suit.

Breathe…

releasing out

toxicity

Gas

deflating

the body

to be

situated

back to

bed

resting

easy

with a

straightforward

Head

under

the pillow.
