I can't wax nostalgic

for penny candy stores

although I remember five and dimes

and I have encountered

rusty wheelbarrows

and enjoyed plums before main course


I'm left to fabricate my own myth

and find some meaning

in an upturned beer glass

and a single cannabis seed

sitting alone on a coffee table


Beer coasters boast my travels

but Neapolitan ice cream

is the only thing to lift my spirits

and I must look ahead

to plot out a new course.

I vaguely remember the brand but I think I used the other brand of cool whip by my parent's selection.
