Babies and Ice Cream

Where babies come from
and how ice cream is made:

when you might not
see each other again,
and there’s a lake,
so you wish everyone
more lakes.

That’s where babies come from
and how ice cream is made.

Where kisses will lead
if you’re not careful:

when you stay up late
and stink at work the next day,
then often enough to lose
the trust of one you
trust still.

That’s where kisses will lead
if you’re not careful.

What to do
in case of emergency:

Hold the despair.
Your heart is in a dozen
rooms in a couple countries,
shouting your name.
Get all of you
to the doctor.

The room for emergencies
is called the Emergency Room.

That’s where kisses will lead
if you’re not careful.

That’s where babies come from
and how ice cream is made.
