Shaped Like Boo-Boo


As I (as we all) pretend to do backflips
on the cold summer tarmac, I

(mustn’t the rest of us?) never confront my fears
until presented with Yogi Bear vitamin gummies
shaped like Boo-Boo and picnic baskets
in four assorted colors (though they all taste the same).

I had a friend one time who insisted that each color
had a unique flavor profile just based upon
the way light reflected off its surface–

I no longer consider that person to be my friend.
