are those you cannot hold
in your mouth
make you want to retch
to clear your gob

and then eat something sweet
to take the taste away.

And knowing you need
to tell another a truth
they do not want to hear
makes you want to delay
the fetch, makes you consider
the depth of sweetness
you need to take the feeling

away
