The Life (and death) Cycle of the Ice Cream Soda

BEANERY ONLINE LITERARY MAGAZINE

THE LIFE (AND DEATH) CYCLE OF THE ICE CREAM SODA

Erin York

 

Birth of the ice cream soda

Into a frosted glass

 

The busiest drink

Trying to devour

Its confines and escape

 

Burning and fizzing,

Jumping and whizzing

Down a thirsty throat

 

A cold drink

That wishes it were lukewarm

To calm its crazy calamity

 

Melting slowly

Stuck to the bottom

Of the glass

 

Sighing out a noise

That snaps, crackles, pops

Final gulp and slurp of foam

 

Ended with a delicate burp

The business has ceased

Leaving the Shoppe silent

 

Death of the ice cream soda

From a frosted glass
