' ' ' ' A 99! - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

A 99!

I watched
your tongue

a little pink
animal

attack the already
melting ice cream

it flicked at it
here
licked at it
there

until
the ice cream

had all but
disappeared.

Your breasts
Rose & fell
(rose & fell)

as magnificent
as the magnificent

domes of
the church’s cupola

in the main
square.

Your lips
arranged themselves

into a smile.

“Now what would you
like to do? ”

Your mouth
arranged the words.

Your tongue
licking the syllables like ice cream.

“I would love to be
your ice cream! ”

You stick out your tongue
at me!
