The demise of the candy heart brigade, by Toni Cross

 

Brutally crunching up tiny sweet hearts

Those stale remainders of February

Whose ranks were once a veritable rainbow

Now only a few distasteful colors are left

Mainly the greens and the yellows

Their death cries are pathetically corny

They call me “Sweet Love” and “Angel”

As if these attempts at seductive platitudes

Could halt my ever chewing teeth

Or still my craving for more

My name is Toni Cross, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
