Pop rocks

sleet
in these slippery times
a glisten and gleaming sheen
out on the street with
 'natural pet safe ice melter'
and in moments after seeding the sidewalk
little cracks and snaps
like the pebble tongue candy
that we later learned was all just basically a clever way of rendering
baking soda
for a nanosecond i was tempted to pop some crystals on my tongue
anticipating the sensation
And then was cast back into semi sensible adulthood
