My Man, the Ice Cream Man by Jasen Sousa

My Man, the Ice Cream Man


My man, the ice cream man, creeps around town
in a marked white van, crawling through the streets
selling magnetic treats to little kids
with metal feet.  Frozen snacks, summer treat.
My man, the ice cream man, plays the city
a song that echoes off signs and buildings.
Memorized, generations of children
that purchase in order to keep living.
My man, the ice cream man, knows about all
the different flavors people want to buy.
Keeps an inventory of an old story
written with a beginning, but no end.
My man, the ice cream man, he will come back

tomorrow to make sure the cities’ fat.
