A million times an hour
there's a racetrack spinning around
like a top the best feeling is when it flies off
the table and lands randomly on the universe.
I can't believe the taste of gum sometimes,
it explodes in my mouth like a star
as it electrifies taste buds until they burst
gushing like a river, or a dam that collapsed.
I see the light of the stars
long after they have gone supernova
until time has stopped, their light shines
on the raindrops that show us the way.
I never eat starburst
I always look at the package and remind myself next time,
and then I reach the corner store and buy something else,
next time I say, there will always be a next time.
