the ice cream people: alternate take

30 Apr

we walk out of the pub after a very late supper
and spy an endless line of people waiting outside the ice cream shop across the street
the queue snakes around the building and into the parking lot
she says who in hell wants ice cream at this time of night in this temperature
rich people baby with rich appetites
and it’s true
most of these salivating pavlovian canines
waiting with money in hand
are obese and comfortable and don’t have to be at their jobs at 5 am the next day
most of these people own houses horses other people
she laughs and says you’re just envious that’s all
of course i am
we laugh together
get in the car
it starts
and we merge into the night traffic like all the others
