sugar sprinkled on a grassy terrain (shimmering
with the rays of the caramelized sun after the rain)
frolics with the raisin pebbles along a cola pond,
or a puddle of chocolate ripples.
The cottony candy clouds after the cry
look down to adore them toppings on the earthen vessel.
some birds chatter “sweet, sweet”,
calling to the lollipop flowers icing the hedge,
the marshmallow buds, and jellybean seeds inside them.
tootsie roll worms have emerged from the cake,
joining in the sweet salad of fun after the rain.
a gummy spider leaves his spout
where honey flows freely from the brownie ground.
he watches a cherry red bug speed by in haste
with its cookie wheels turning, homeward bound, hugging
a peanut brittle path, and splashing the lozenge stones
with a dose of soda fizz.
the toffee mountain dotted with candy cane trees, serene.
A syrup of cocoa flows like melted ice cream on its side,
causing an avalanche of fudge down, down
where the blender river makes a chocolate shake.
A kid watches by and tries to imagine
all the sweets in the palm of his hand.
He shakes his head for his tooth began to ache.
