A Moment Candy

By Tracey Regalbuto

Hyped like a child sprinkled with a sugary mist
Eyes stuck shut frosted with bliss

Knees weak stand like jello
Taste of clear sprite or mellow yellow

Air blocked by a chocolate wall
Teeth chilled like first bite in a snowball

Scent of fresh berries under my nose
Body sticky like candy made clothes

Pixie stix fingers reach for skin
Sweat drips brown like wet cinnamon

A wonderland experience I’m glad I didn’t miss
Sweet and enchanted that was some kiss
