The concept of candy counter

is learned around age four.

You toddle in holding

auntie's hand and there

it is! Colors attached 

to every sweet flavor 



Auntie always has a way

to get a bagful. Chocolate

was made for getting shirts

or dress fronts messed up



Later, the candy changes

into clothes and cars,

furniture, and vacations.

It is all sweet and comes

in a huge rainbow

of flavors. Candy.

The thing about clothes and cars and vacations and furniture is that one must work hard to afford them. Candy is the luxury of the Everyman.
