Sweet toothed, corn fed
tout suite, Dilly Bar
chocolate dip, Banana Split
Hot Fudge Sundae, Peanut Buster
Parfait, Strawberry Shortcake,
Crunch Coat, Marshmallow,
Caramel, Butterscotch, Pineapple,
push-pop, Bomb Pop, soft-serve twist—
chocolate and vanilla capped
with a fetchingly perfect loop
a flourish added by pimply teens
the world over. Freezes, malts, shakes
sugar cone, waffle cone, waxed paper cup.
Red plastic spoons like antenna.
Cement tables stained with a Milky Way
of melted ice-cream constellated
with sprinkles scattered
under an orbit of bees and children like pilgrims
in the holy land of sweetness, joyous
and soon to be martyred for the cause.
