Candy Cane à la Salvador Dali

by Chris Sorrenti


From the five year old who colored square fruit on his first apple tree...

The strangest candy cane ever made; uneven Paper Mache long ago solidified.
Its red and green stripes (never thought of using white) still covered in gold sparkles,
sprinkled with loving care by an innocent artist’s hand some forty years before.

Every Christmas, mom and dad delicately lift this kindergarten keepsake
to its rightful place on the tree; easily standing out amid the ornamental clones;
worthy of a perennial laugh over a cup of eggnog.

And like its creator...those square apples...good for another forty years.
