Word Candy - Poem by Anna Moriarty Lev
i, unwrap slowly
meticulously twisted plastic wrapper
tiny sweet word.
i, lift colored plastic wrapper
sticky lovely word.
place it on my tongue.
rolls around clacking teeth
sugar color melting
tapping my molars
looping around the back
entrance to my throat
riding saliva to behind my lips
licking the ribbed roof of my mouth
inside of cheeks.
word, i have eaten you, word
you have spoken.
