Marshmallow Peeps

marshmallow peeps

bought in

dollar store

five-packs

chew easily

in the memory of

pastel easter dresses

itchy tights

& panic attacks

these mass-produced

yellow chick drops

didn’t have their

eyes printed on properly

one eye on the top

& one on the side

throw one into your

afternoon hot chocolate

watch it dissolve into

yellow & white

foam

blonde hair

tied up &

hold still

today you recall how

the sensory feeling of

that long hair

was hell for you

today you shaved

the sides of your head

so you can start growing a

new-age mullet

& dye it pink

& i guess it’s been so long

since uncomfortable sermons

& bunny ears

plastic eggs

& cheap candy
