Marshmallows

Sticky-sweet
Nonreactive
Sharpest stones
Strongest hooks
All absorbed
In whiteness

Once burnt
Twice blackened
Pierce-able crust
Unformed softness
Disappearing sweetness
No engagement

This one soured
Sucking sweetness
Sucking life
Still blankness
White of fungus
White of death

Marshmallow people
In steady supply
Give nothing
Share nothing
Blank faces
Blank hearts
