dVerse Poetics – Hot Night

Write a poem on any topic in any poetic form, that includes at least one of the flavors of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream in the list above. You must use the words exactly as they appear in the flavor name. No words in between them; no changing the tense of the words or making them plural or possessive. You may however, add punctuation before, between or after the words in the flavor.

Sipping his urban bourbon nightcap hoping for a better day

Possibly a cool brittania

He had walked through the urban jumble that morning

Sidewalks so hot they buckled like wavy gravy,

Feet sticking slightly in the dastardly mash

Feeling half-baked from the season’s heat wanting solace

A cool late night snack might soothe

“This is nuts” he thought, longing for Miz Jelena’s sweet potato pie or a sugar plum

Instead deciding no sleep would come, chose a coffee coffee buzzbuzzbuzz, settling with a book.
