Sweet Sandy (Dedicated to Edinburgh Rock)

My hot mouth sucks your sticky sediment.
A cement of sugar, water, cream of tartar;
Phallus of sugarcane: salmon pink glow stick.
My saliva congeals to your skin, the next suck
meets with cold slobbers.
I crunch into the root of this sweet finger
again and again. My acidic tongue corrodes
sweet chemistry. I lick and delight in
this affair between mouth and minion.
This burner of molars, dentist’s pay cheque,
a child’s demand. Mother’s cunning dummy,
Great volcanic one: Sweetmeat, my saccharine love.
