i scream

Posted to Action Poetry




the summer of ice cream love
the popsickle fun
the sun of rainbow bomb pops
sno cones and silly gum
at the bottom of a cup
summer ice cream love
let me lick the stick
the fudge, the drops
of frozen notes that tinkle
from the ice cream van
standing here in the parking lot
I wait for the afternoon rain
to go away and for
the ice cream summer train
to come again
to follow forever
i am thinking of you
when i was a kid
when i could buy love
for 25 cents a drop
