Licks – Color Project

Childhood is a charlatan

I have eaten all the

red lollipops there are to lick,

and my face is permanently stained.

 

I am a constant victim of curiosity.

 

Free time flies away

on a paper airplane.

 

I left my wherewithal

in a cubby.

 

No one ever told me

just take three licks.

Take your licks now.
