NaPoWriMo #3

Sugar Mass & Colour Swirl

Perhaps Earth’s a lollipop
and we - tricked into sugar-mass
and colour-swirl sticky and expendable -
forget to think of space,

its dark flap of tongue,
the wiggling tastebuds of stars consuming time
(we created ticking clocks although their message is not ours
and control ends

at our fingertips like carrots 
in the soup pointing the way the ladle stirs us)
Will we be licked to white; another cheek-side smear 
on the Milky Way?
