Ode to My Diet Coke
Nectar of the gods, I salute thee.
I take a swig
and am transported
far beyond the world of SWAG boluses and fingersticks
to a simpler moment
to a simpler time
when none of it mattered
and a Coke was a Coke, not a nutritional nightmare
yet diabetes friendly
It is addicting
It is powerful
It is a force of nature
It hits my blood stream like a glass of Orange Juice on a 55 mg/dl, & I am revived.
oh fountain of carbonated goodness
immersing my taste buds in an explosion of delight

the crack for the crack-less
the energy for the sleep deprived
the icing for a non-existent cupcake
this I want, this I need, this I crave
(addicted much? umm, yes)
I will raise my glass, and drink, to you.
