The Longing of a Decorative Street Plant

If you strolled instead of dashing through impertinently
And I did not only sway to gentle unseen caresses

If you were not so distracted with red blue greens

And I did not always stand rooted in resignation

If you touched me without your plastic shrink wrapped fingers

And my skin were soft silk and not brittle wrinkles

If you could adore and find joy in things unfashioned
And I had lips wet and warm to crush against yours
If you had the words to bring forth your heart
And I could serenade you to contented sleep
If your blood were enough to satisfy your thirst
And there was more of me than all of you

If this were some other time
And you were someone else

And I were anything else

Then maybe, just maybe

Things To Try Once #1

The Earthquake - This
earth-shaking extravaganza
combining 8 scoops of old
fashioned ice cream and rich
toppings: chocolate fudge, hot
fudge, butterscotch, hot caramel,
strawberry, pineapple jam,
marshmallow, mixed almonds,
whipped cream and cherries.

This is a bloody free ad for Swensen's, but heck it this is good fun. Try the regular size. See how far you get. Good fun for families and friends who don't mind dipping into the same bowl with utensils they've put in their mouth. Some people have issues. Seriously.
