Ode To Milk
We were never meant to correlate, but merely coexist.
You never kept me satisfied,
you never tasted quite right.
For we were always
bound to grow apart,
And as you curdled at the bottom of the jug,
my stomach screamed in protest.
The first time you showed me
how your true colors could tint your whiteness,
I had to call it quits.
I never liked your sour displacement.
Sure, we tried to get along when I was young
and knew no other beverage.
We tried to plug our noses and wash each other down
with squelches and squinting eyes.
But as you dissolved my breakfast cereal
—a feat you accomplished so fast that I had to commend your authority—
I wondered if no friendship at all
was better than a soggy one.
