Where The Popsicles Are-162

Popsicles

Post surgical thirst leaves
Dry lips and mouth.

Ice chips and sips, soothe
As do cool wet sponge swabs.

But someone needs to know
Where the popsicles are.

With their promise of
Cherry crystals of icy, cold relief.

A sweet, wet cold that washes over your lips
And rolls around in your mouth.

A cold, as you swallow, that says things are better,
And you will be okay.

But someone needs to know
Where the popsicles are.

About Bob Kallberg

Retired reporter. Concentrating now on recounting Joanie's 12 year battle with cancer, a battle she waged with extreme courage, determination and an indomitable spirit, that, for me, serves as an example.
