Why I Love Dr. Pepper

burns on the way down
tastes sweet
it's 16 dollars
a week
on average
won't begin
and then continue
to play the spoiled
little drop me
by the "how-to" book
that one day after
on the year
which if you'd
managed to set
aside your fears
you might've marked
upon your calender
the previous
back when your love
had just begun
and the only tears
you'd ever cry for her
would burn on the way down
with sweetness
