that tupelo Honey
that intermission in class
when the teacher came 'round
and turned on that van morrison song

and he poured that Honey
on the gleaming white spoons
and the song strummed along
while the Honey,
yellow. like'. urine?
sat on the spoon.

yellow'
(and i picked up the Honey.)
sticky'
(then i tasted the Honey.)
sweet'
(and i couldn't stand it.)
burning my throat, all the way down


and my tastebuds sang.

'sweetstickyyellow!

yellowstickysweet!

stickysweetyellow!'

so sweet.
too sweet.
and the song changed.
and the moment was gone.
just like that.
