Gum

If I keep treating my friends like pieces of gum

        plucking them out of their box

        peeling them out of their shells

        pink and naked

        breaking them between my teeth

        chewing them up until

                they lose their flavor

        and then spitting them out

only to 

        pluck the next out of their box

        peeling them out of their shells

        bare and naked

        breaking them between my teeth

        blowing my hot air 

                until they burst

        or chewing them up

                                                until I spit them out

I know I'll get cavities one day.
