Artificial

I’m breaking up with Diet Coke
Fraudulent thrills and sugarless sweets
Candy shelled vapid jokes
Bunkum bon bons and honey treats

That make me reach like Tantalus
A presque vu taste belt junkie
Sweating sucrose ravenous
Two hours later hungry

(For times when)

Sweets were food and I was me
Girls were girls and lust was free

Ingredients like the Book of Numbers
A Latin Mass of calumny

Cyclamate and Aspartame,
Neolyte and Saccharin
Agave and Neotame
Acesulfame Potassium

Pantheon of gods of thunder
Or star-crossed love Greek Tragedy
