Write About Lollipops

Orange Lollipop 

My favorite color to look at is yellow

    Like a drop of sun flattened on a stick

But yellow is no color to eat

    maybe – when that’s all you have left

The sweetest are red and dark purple

    they remind me of stained glass

They break the flat emptiness

    and love it into waves and highlights

Green I never want to eat

    It gets crushed in the back of my bag

        under books and journals

        and the occasional guitar pick

Orange is my son’s favorite color

    He wants it ice, solid or fashion

Yes, orange is an especially good color…

 

especially when I share a lollipop with him.

green lollipops, no.

furry lollipops...no-er. I have outgrown the forced consumption of fuzzy candies from old ladies' purses...or cats (both candy from and consumption of...)
