Been there a long time!

by Alison Quinn, 2024

Candies pocketed,

old chocolates melted flat,

now like dry mud scales,

the sweetness cold and gone.


Does the thrill of remembrance

satisfy like creamy satiation,

or disappear in the tasting,

deflated by swift gluttony?


Oh, have just one old piece.

Reawaken the craving in you,

Yearn and satiate fully clear.

Surprise!  Taste again.
