A bitter sweet
cocoa candy bar
treasured with
the utmost
special care
was to be
shared with
another
who’d
barter a
matching same

but somehow
on the way
a push
a trip
and the poor
little fella
couldn’t take
the friggin fall
so it
a little
kind of broke
into those
million pieces

took it
back to the
magic shop
all the bits
all the shards
safely tucked
in a little
plastic
ziplock

with a smile
the chef lady
sweetly said
‘been waiting
for you dear,
for this is
where
you get to
pour it
all out’

so she
put it all
in a magic
melting pot
and a
magic-bit later
slowly
poured it out
in a heart
shaped
waiting mold

popped it out
wrapped it
with a ribbon
and a bow
and as as she
handed it
back to me
she whispered
a wee bit
seemingly
seriously
sternly –

‘you had
better
take better
care of it
this time,
for Valentine’s
discount
is only
available
to you
this once’.
