Sweet

Like a lollipop stuck on your shirt
Or sugar spilt on your trousers
Molasses caressing,
Your clothing stained
On the cress of the cuff, corn chowder,

A chocolate kiss
Left on the lips
Several sprinkles sprayed ‘long these fingertips
Whipped cream dripped, accost the lazy sips
As if lamenting will-o-wisps

I’m sweet on you like sweet sweet honey
Like trickled cheeky honey-sticks
Around the wicked candle wick
Which burns for you,
Diffusing slowly onto you

And though the dew could not remain runny
And though these days refuse to stay sunny
I’m still sweet on you
Like thick thick honey,

Which one day I’ll find funny.
