Lucozade | NaPoWriMo #16

after Jackie Kay's 'Lucozade' 

Lucozade - fizzy, light, bouncy
like the boys who used to drink it. 

In our school, we had vending machines
full of them.

But at an all-girls-school
no-one wanted to be the fool that
got fat
from Lucozade.

it was too late for me.

My stomach was already
a bubble
too big
to be popped.
