We use it sweeten bitter things, like going to work in a hotel for 5 days.
We use it to fill empty places– dreams unfulfilled until they are crusting over and syrupy sweet.
I prefer a life of glutamates, rich, buttery, and real. The flavor of fulfilled,
and pushing back from the table.
When all you taste is metal, there is nothing to be done
put some sugar on the bit and try to have some fun.
