POEM - When I Gave You The Sweet

When I gave you the sweet
The face that you made,
When I gave you the sweet
It gave you away.
The red foil paper like
Color that shoots from
A flare gun against dark -
Edged hospital corners
That lovingly held
Each candy - the red cross
Ribbon that promised
A great rescue, draping
When cut, like flaccid
Arms with not one muscle -
Loose and looking like spilled
Blood - quiet, forceful
A mask of violent
Morning that you wore
Beneath your shadowed eyes -

When you woke -
When i left you
With just the bitter

Flavor.
