Melting Point

Yesterday I killed
A Kool-Aid spoon
I did not use him
As intended
The pan of popcorn
Was too hot
It broke apart
His structure
And left his
Stretching yellow strands
Throughout
Our snack
There was no way
To save it
Or remold his head
To bring him back
I had to hide
Him from my kid
If she had seen
His melting
But still smiling face
She would have
Sobbed
Without restraint

But then
Last night
She found out
And she did
Oh, how she did
