Disappearing Candy


They are all slim and athletic, Boulder-ites,
they ride centuries on their bikes and run at lunch,
but I know they love candy - I have documented
how quickly it disappears.
At 10 am, I put out the stash, at 10:45, the Almond
Joys are gone, at 11:30, some lonely Reese's cups
and finally at noon, a lonely one,
gone at 1 pm when I look again.
Yet there are not so many people in my building
so I know some of them eat more than their
share, but me, I don't care.
