cotton candy sunrise   shells slide over my feet /ls

a breakfast bagel with cream cheese and lox  /bk

the small kitten's nose nuzzles the mom's pink nipples /dp

his smile  so nice if it weren't for all those gums/ ml

half the fun was spitting them    seedless watermelon  /naia

pink velveteen tales  of boys in bow ties  /kk

her party dress a match for the bubble-gum in her hair /ml

strawberry Jell-O she flings a spoonful at her sister /ct

chasing leaves    the roses in a little girl's cheeks/sw

clown grins    our lips after raspberry ice  /ek

first snowflakes   on our tongues  /sw

prayer time    her garnet heart picks up the moonlight  /cr
