Jello’s Ode

Jell-o’s Ode

Fruit-flavored lights!
Shivering, quivering, edible sights!
Spooned up suns of chewable mood-
Plasmic, prismic, rhythmic, food.

Cool-jeweled pools of swimming sliced fruits:
Crisp apple crayfish and mandarin newts.
Mellifluous, drift-through-us, cubical, spherical,
Sinuous swallows of transparent miracle.

(Spring,1971)
