knock knock

as a child
there were
certain candies
that were prized

over others

after each freshly
harvested bag
of halloween
treats had be checked
for poisoned apples
or pin punctured
popcorn

they were divided
into most and least
likely to be devoured
the astro rocket blasters
were always amongst
the first group
of candies
to be annihilated

even now
i remember
how each delectable
layer would stick
inside the micro
crevasses


of my teeth
