sweet nothing

Her

cotton candy lips

spat

ice cream sprinkled words.

Her

candy coated fingernails

click click

clacked,

tap tap

tapped,

on

the

counter

top.

Our eyes

played

catch me

if you

can.

Smiles started

in the middle

and

taffy stretched

so wide

our heads would

topple,

ice cream scoop

off its

sugar cone.

The bell on the door

tink tink

tinkled,

as I let it close.

I looked back.

She did

Not.
