SUGAR RUSH

I havenít been able to say much yet  
To your response, a confession of sorts †
That has me speechless what to say, I fret. †
†  
You suddenly now exist in my world †  
With a comment that begins as regret. †  
I sit up and blink at what follows next: † † †
†  
Iím a kid in a sweet shop who dares you †
For samples of everything on display, †
Of candy cane, chocílate & carímel chew. †
†  
A sailor on leave, in port, feeling pissíd †
From tankards of ale heís yet to consume, †
With hostess on knee he hasnít yet kissíd. † †
†  
And tossing my horns Ďmidst all of the crash, †
A bull with cash in an arcade of glass, †
That knows itís his fifteen minutes of fame. †
†  
A stay-at-home mom of three under age †
Who hears a loud tapping at the front door †  
As babe in her arms throws milk on the floor. †
†  
Itís Publishers Clearing House, and a crew †  
With six-figure check as big as a plank, †
With chance of a lifetime... what do I do? †
†  
I go to your site and read everything †
Just on the front page, and no poetry, †
First wanting to know just how do you rank. †
† †
Reminding me when as a child back home †  
At kitchen table reading boxes alone †
For breakfast before the school bus arrives, †
†  
Chewing on flexy-straws, crossing my eyes, †
Tapping my shoes as I scan the box flaps: †
Lucky Charms, Capín Crunch & Apple Jacks. †
†  
I saw the word ďsapiosexualĒ, †  
And thatís when I knew that my cereal †
Was anointed wí pink milk this morning. † †
†  
My mom had stiríd in the QUIK powderíd mix, †
Strawberry-flavored kind, out of my mind, †
And ran for the bus on each dayís sugar rush. †
†  
I told you I was speechless didnít I? †
†
