Sunrise Lolly

By Carl Colaco


Sunrise Lolly


3 am DM’s

Juice of a relationship

1 love, peeled and chopped


Finely grate all the texts you’ve sent

And place on a tea towel

Gather up the towel and squeeze

The tears into a jug

Discard the pulp


Add the juice of a relationship

Top up with smiles, memes, wishes and dreams

Make up to 120 ml, similar to the days since he left

Stir in the zest and pieces of love

Pour into lolly moulds

Freeze overnight
