Something Bright

Something Bright

i think i would not try
to eat something so
unfamiliar, maybe
toxic, maybe lethal,

unless i saw 
something else
(preferably someone)
eat it first,
and walk away
unharmed.


but don't they
look so good?

maybe you'd like
to try some and
maybe i could
watch you not die.


we could rethink
and have a
second thought.

how would i know
what you died from?
probably not from 
milk and cookies.


some days, it seems,
we have a little 
too much excitement.

if that's not enough, 
we can make 
something up.
