Soda Pop Love – A Poem

Full disclosure: I have been addicted to Coca Cola since I was 4 years old. It’s something I cannot live without (although there’s a good chance that it’ll kill me someday. This poem is an ode to this addiction.

I feel your fizz dance across my cheek

misty prickling alive with sweet, dark, sugar

both cold and warm and bursting around my tongue –

you bring a frosted sizzle to my day,

a wakeful jolt into my belly,

a buzzing bolt charging into my brain.
