The sickly sweetness and addictive nature of infatuation is like that of peach jam. As is the temporary satisfaction and ensuing nauseous aftertaste. peach jam is the perfect metaphor, a short but sweet punch of flavor needed to reflect on the joys and disappointments of young lust. Winner of 2019 Austin International Poetry Festival Youth Awards Project; 3rd best-in-grade. Published in 2019 di-verse-city Youth Anthology.
