Sweet Tooth

You are all the things I love:
Melted caramel over green apples
on the first crisp days of fall.
Peanut butter spread on toast
those early mornings when there’s still
untouched snow on the patio.
The first sip of iced tea with honey
welcoming flowers as they poke from the ground.
Even cotton candy, the kind that fades on your tongue
and tastes like sticky summer air, children’s laughs.
You are all these things.
But I can only have so many sweets.
