one donut to sit upon

One donut, to sit upon, surround the abdomen, to sweeten the A1c; see you later in antipathy but the entire moment was delicious, short-lived, with finger and lips, licked, and a krispy kreme coffee at just the late hour, a peak like pike’s to keep the heart jumping jacks; eyes wide open underneath shut lids donuts and caffeine spinning, lids open and closing - the learned steer far from this good ship lollipop. temple is throbbing under its spell. there’s a donut to pay, a pain in the knowing - soon it’ll be showing its plan: the hasty krispy kreme or the dunkin-kind - a sweet lambaste don’t wear its ring or fall for its filling you’ll have to divorce this goody…you can have half 11/12/2022

The sweet dream of a Krispy Kreme....and, oh how I know it...the Duncan Donut!! I love them but they hate me. My sister says that they're to die for...especially the Krispy Kreme donuts. Sadly, the gluten-induced stomachache (for me anyway) makes me think, not! I'm sorry, you are not feeling well Kim. I hope you're better soon. I really admire how you wrote this, the form is fun, and the warning is taken!

Great creative poem Kim. I do not eat donuts often, but do like the Lemon Filled or Boston Cream :) I did used to drink way too much caramel mocha Iced Coffee. Even reading about the sugar in your poem got my mind going lol :)
