Hard Candy

Hard candy in my mouth
Sweet
Savory
I could suck upon sweetness
Until it’s gone
Like the quest to the middle
Of the tootsie roll pop
But
Just like the oh so wise owl
I cannot lick
And suck
For hours on end
Food is meant to be eaten
Masticated
Devoured
Which is what I do
With a hearty crunch
Candy is bitten
In two
