Areej Siddiqui

Written by
Areej Siddiqui

Areej is a Saudi-born Pakistani citizen, now doing her B.A. in Ontario, Canada. Areej officially studies English and Philosophy but can be found at all hours gobbling up a book on something or other. While being a devoted DWL-ite, she is also (very much by luck, chance) a Poetry Editor at The Missing Slate. She happens to write poetry that some deem publishable, also by luck, chance, and in her spare time (if an undergraduate student can claim to have such a thing) she indulges in copious amounts of bad television and cheesy movies about kittens. Her favourite word at the time of writing this bio is "silly."

Share Your Candy, Children

Share,

your candy,

children.

Good girls go

to heaven –

 

where

Adam

and Eve

ate candy apples

with soda

and slept

naked

under trees.

 

Let’s

play hide

and seek

in the garden

and drink

pearl-dew

from flowers

and mommy’s not home.

 

So let’s

make believe –

I’m Adam

and you’re Eve –

I’ll give you

my apples

if you let me

savour

your candy.

 

Share

your candy,

children.

Good girls go

to heaven.

 

I promise.
