Candy Hearts

by Ari Eastman

 

Your name is still stitched somewhere

on the back of my throat.

I have tried to erase any lingering taste buds,

but they only get more stubborn with time.

I guess whatI’m saying

is I don’t know how to stop.

I guess what I’m saying

is there is part of me that’s terrified

I’ll love you silently

until I choke.
