Blue Cotton Candy


Blue Cotton Candy 



The day dissolves in my mouth like cotton candy finding it’s peaceful end 


Hesitant to believe that this never ending day would actually conclude


Trapped in a permanent wet tongue


Down slimy throat, intestinal shame 

A life of toilet and drains and shit water!?


When it had once been so light, so airy, so sugary sweet. 

And so pretty. 


Once so cheap and disease-less

Warless and free.
