beware the candy pusher

i should
have sold candy
small little treats
to rot your teeth
rather than
biting little
odes that rot
your sugary soul

nine out of ten
recommend candy
because once
you’ve become
a poet’s focus
heroin is far
leas detrimental

this stuff i am
peddling will leave
an aching cavity
in your chest
no amount of novacaine
can begin to numb
as you writhe
needing a little more

you could become
one of the children
of the corn syrup
listen to the experts
or you’ll be itching
where my fingers ran
like track marks down
your sugary little soul
