This crayon holds a color exceptionally unique:

Somewhere in between red and yellow.

It makes me want to eat it like a lollipop.

The swirling brightness seems to drip on the paper

and I can almost taste it on my tongue,

flowing down, down my parched throat.

It's wonderful to see the sweetness mixing with

Charcoal Black to create fire.

It makes me happy to know that

Sugar sifts through my veins now.

Everything is perfect. The picture

Is a masterpiece only because

the crayon was the perfect shade between

Cherry Red and Brilliant Yellow.


I have found the taste

amazingly rich and satisfying.

The candy melts to a pure liquid

In my mouth. It is here only to leave me

delighted and refreshed;

like after a cool drink of water.

Lusciousness calms my heart

that never stills, and soon I will have to find

another stick of amazing, beautiful color.
