hard candy

 

she sucked on the words

hard candy

pilfered from her fertile mind

rolling them around on her tongue

savoring the contrasting flavors of bitter and sweet

feeling the smooth surfaces and sharp edges

turning over the sounds of the words

that she knew better than to share

with anyone
