Licorice Ice Cream & Chocolate Syrup

Poem By Bob Genevro

Like the giant claw of a steam shovel
the silver scooper bores into the
asphalt-black ice cream

The dark ice-globe
plops
on a brown sugar cone.

Chocolate syrup
as thick as house paint
oozes over the pinball dome and
hardens into a thin Hershey bar

A mouth
salivating
descends to
CRUNCH

Dancing prancing albino ponies
dance to the cap-gun crackle

We stood and proclaimed 'I do' wedding wows
