Candied Time

I’ve sweetened you with Monday’s
trepidation
pouring out crystal powdery
drop drop drops

I’ve laced you with Tuesday’s
exhaustion
slicing up yellow bitter
crop crop crops

I’ve stirred you with Wednesday’s
inspiration
combining each day in
lump lump lumps

I’ve boiled you in Thursday’s
anticipation
counting down the bubbles
pop pop pop

I’ve molded you in Friday’s
aspiration
shaping your form with new
mold mold molds

Time and time again
I’ve chilled you under stars
named you Saturday and Sunday
yet here you are
bittersweet
