Peanut butter and jelly

It’s all warm inside
And moist
The sticky touch
Of jelly
On the butter knife
After scraping it
Over slices of bread
I get hungry
For its sweetness
But can’t take the labor
Of screwing on the lid
Always leaving it open
When I’m done
And let the knife drip
Dessert always being
The better part of a meal
But for me,
The whole thing
Is dessert
From top to bottom
From inside and out
From this side or that
The bun and the bacon
The hotdog and roll
The peanut butter
And jelly.
