frozen or room temperature?

perfect broken
      pieces for sharing.

when i was in secondary
school my best friend
marie and i used
to always have contests
to see who could
fit the most toffee
shards in their mouth
-- it was quite the comical
moment indeed
by the time our cheeks
were stuffed
we could barely
close our lips

there was a lot
of drooling when
it finally came to chewing
and swallowing as that
was a contest as well
-- to see who would
consume them
the fastest
and of course
-- i won every
single time

although i have a small
mouth -- when it comes
to devouring candy
i will increase the cheek
space quite quickly
-- i think it is because
i got my cheeks
from my father.
