Sugar

I keep adding sugar to my tea

Wondering how much it takes to become solid.

Each teaspoon is laden

with promise

So crystalline clear

And like my resolve

dissolves

Upon contact with hot infusions of steam.

I’ve tried artificial substitutes

Hoping engineered structures designed to be better

would be

anything but frail dust
