A Baby Fascinated By A Can Of Soda Remembers

by Wendy Freborg

Oh, my Coke can friend,
you were so bright.
your red was like no other.

I gave my heart, my happy talk to you.
I thought the light that glinted from your curves
would shine on me forever.

Where have you gone?
I thought we were best friends forever.
You were smooth, but you were also cold and hard.

An afternoon is all we had.
