now let us…

And now let us concoct
three basic flavors – call them primary
if primary is the choice a team or two
of the out-of-staters prefer
if on their turf Primary
outweighs Basic – but anyway, to return
to creation, we were mapping
preliminary, frankly quite nicely
pre-probed plans for flavors and felt
right away that much could be done
with about three really good ones;
and they shall be for ice cream,

Vanilla gets a quite short shrift.
Oh but whiff a genuine
vanilla bean; get that vanilla
whiff off the coffee shop waitress
who by day plays a college
student and appreciates the arts
and letters. Of course once in a while
blend in works with tongues that grow
up in a household that spoke
with paprika yet her eyes are of a doe…
but anyway, to return to creation…

About Timmy the Scribbler

Love to write all kinds of stuff I love writing so many different kinds of stuff it is a constant struggle to narrow the focus to a manageable handful and let the others go. But a few years ago I dipped my fingers into a poetry pie and of all my uncertainties, one thing that is no uncertainty is that it is one passion that must remain, so maybe that's the one. I do dearly delight in chopping up fictional works into stanzas and syllables.
