Little girl writes strawberry jam;
Scrawls it across dry parchment in scarlet ink.
Little girl smells strawberry jam;
Headier than her mama's favourite perfume.
Little girl tastes strawberry jam;
Fills her mouth with tangy, kaleidoscopic flavours.
Little girl bleeds strawberry jam;
Hugs herself tight at night beneath bed sheets stained crimson.
Little girl dies in strawberry jam;
Covered from head to toe in sticky red.
