Liquorice chiclets

From your cheerful mouth

All the way up–

up to your unprevented nose

I had quit gum

Whatever reason I had

For a long while

Breathing through your mouth

Strident flavor all over your tongue

Mint liquorice on the sides of your mouth

Chewing gum

Chewing back time

For a long while
