Love, Explained

It's a bowl of candy snakes--
Try them.
Take one.

They have a bite--
An acquired taste.
You should see your face.

Careful!
Careful!
(just kidding.)
Try this one.

I see you've found a favorite--
You could taste it, date it, marry it, bury it.

Sugar venom
On the tongue
Numbs the heart.
C'mon...

Just a little snakey kissy face.
Chicken!
B-bawk.
It's just a bowl of candy snakes--
Don't you trust me,
Silly one?

You slay me, Shay. I love never knowing what you're going to write next.

Now I know why they say never take candy from strangers. And it doesn't get any stranger, or any more Fireblossom, than this. I like the monkshood blue one.

I can envision Jim Morrison belting out these lyrics!

"Marry it, bury it."

Indeed.
