Forget Forever

by meaghanmerrifield


sticky lids give way

no match for the stupid strength

of curious children

eager to consume colors

the colors

which they were promised would swirl


slow to a still

but unwise eyes shut as quickly as they open

sick from

leaking fat pinks

blubberous boiling blues

seeking to settle back

into beds they remembered to be warm

to forget forever that raging storm
