Spearmint was always the taste in my mouth when I kissed you
Because we were always walking together after seventh hour
And I always got four spearmint candies in seventh hour
And I always had one in my mouth
Now you walk with your hand in Margaret Dickinson's
And I walk a few steps behind you
With my spearmint candy
And
Bite
Down

Great poem! I love the simplicity and you can feel how the sweet taste of spearmint has grown bitter! I love the contrast!
