There was this scene in “Best of the Best” at a gas station

Gotta have it

When choosing a flavor
of ice cream
be careful not to let
emotions get in the way

Forget the feeling of
the cold dairy
dripping down a pink shirt
As she storms
out of the parlor

Or the sick stomach
tumbling in clumsy somersaults
after the spoon scrapes
the cardboard bottom
of the container

Quart of course

Make sure the cone
will taste just as good salty
a stone cold mix-in of
uncontrollable public sobbing
and a hungry dog licking
your sticky arm
free of charge

In the end
pick a scoop that
will deliver what’s needed
A hit of brain-freeze
to keep your wrists from bleeding

You will heal with sugar and time
Maybe more of each than you hoped for
