Chocolate boy
You peel away a dream,
Strip the wrapper
Off your sugar-melted skin,
Dance on a pole
For the candy-crunching crowd,
Like a wheel dull
With the same spin.
Your figure grows
Into one of Michelangelo's
Statues. To them, your art
Fresh from the box
Without keys or locks.
Every dark, delicious part.
Soon nobody glances,
But oh, how you dance
To the beat of a broken heart!
