I want to have a bowl of sweet milk.
Before heating the milk,
take a lactase pill
in case of stomach distress.
While the milk is on the stove,
clean up the table,
wipe off the stains.
When the milk is done,
put it on the table top,
open up a can of sweet cereal,
pour some into the milk.
Then I can just bend up my knees,
feet on the edge of the chair, bared,
waiting for the milk to sweeten.
It won't take long.
When the milk
turns from boiling hot to piping hot,
it's almost ready to drink.
The first sip is just slightly sweet.
The second sip, its sweetness being just a little more than slightly.
With the sugar in the cereal
is sweeter than the previous one.
Moreover, the rest of the milk
is becoming sweeter
Sip by sip I drink up this bowl of milk.
The last sip,
happens to be the sweetest.
