A Teaspoon of Sweet

A steak is too heavy
So I’m having this

A craving, not a need
So much rare it is

A dessert and even less
A drink and even less—
A drip

A teaspoon of sweet

Rare and pure
Just a hint

Caught in the wild,
Bottled in a jar;
A teaspoon of sweet

Like the last thought
Before I sleep

Like the last dream
Before I wake up

The last light
Before the dark

The last raindrop
Before the mud

Honey on my lips
The last word,

The last kiss;
A teaspoon of sweet
