Butterscotch

Butterscotch
on the back of my throat.
Like thick corn syrup
and straight sugar.

Swallow down,
swish it around,
cringe and frown.

Butterscotch
synonym for sun
for the vampire I always thought
I was.

Swallow down,
swish it around,
cringe and frown.

Butterscotch
maple drenched pancakes
without the cake
heavy in my stomach.

Swallow down,
swish it around,
cringe and frown

till it goes
down.
