Apple-cheeked, she crunches leaves;
her feet map their way to crystal falls.
I breathe in; her honey-sweetness is sin.
She turns; her lashes bow assent.
She minuses shirt, shorts, boots
“Let’s jump in!”
Trees whisper over sugared sighs.
Directly inspired by Iggy Pop’s song, “Candy.”
Mish is today’s host of dVerse’ Quadrille Monday. Mish says:
Let’s sweeten up our quadrilles, shall we? Pop a bit of candy into your poem. Use it as a noun, verb or adjective. As always, the theme and style of your poem is open. Just remember your quadrille should be exactly 44 words, not including the title and include the word “candy” or a derivative of the word.
