poetry by j matthew waters

taking the rocky road out of town

she walked casually into the room
two oversize scoops atop a sugar cone
and as her eyes caught mine
she suddenly froze

I sensed small wisps of steam
hovering above the dark chocolate
assorted nuts and marshmallows

she extended her arm
as if holding a microphone
and for a brief moment
found myself unable to speak

youโ€™re funny she said
pulling back her arm
turning around and kicking one leg back
suddenly vanishing before my eyes
laughing and licking
right out of dodge

april two thousand fifteen
