Catch Some Wide Eye

Here’s A Cool Treat


cool, shaved ice
that melts on the tongue
flavored with cherry, lemon, lime
whatever fruit the earth can produce
wherever you can climb the vine
and pluck the sweet berry, the melon
that sweetness, the tartness can be squeezed
into myriad colors and dropped onto cones
designed for relief.
press your lips and your tongue
onto shivering joy:
heaven in a plastic cup.
