I was blond hair with gods
for hairdressers when you
circled my ironed bob
clockwise and back again.
A cherry picked a moment ago
by your index finger and thumb,
the same hand you held the glass
with that evening we became
one year old.
We’re still babies in our world yet
I’m ready to nestle between layers
of Black Forest cake bathing in cream.
We scream and sugar
is just a jar sitting on the shelf.
Your favorites are pickles and sauerkraut
and I think how I’d be better off
in your mouth instead of mine
