12 Oct 2015 – Sorting Skittles
(for Paula Oxner)

the Lemon worthy,
and the Grape – surprising!
(though far too many.)

the Limes were strangers
to their Key lime brethren –
and margaritas.

Orange might have pleased more,
had they not been next to last
to lovely Cherry.

ah, lovely Cherry!
I’ve been waiting all this time –
taste buds now sodden.
