Ice Cream


I eat ice cream

In the winter

So it does not melt

Like it used to

Dribble down between your breasts

And pool at your navel so

I could dive in

And drink in the memories.

And it still tastes delicious

Though it was so long ago

I no longer remember

If you were an innie or an outie

Or if we did this

Or if it is

Only in my dreams

Of summer and ice cream.
