 happiness, pint by pint

this morning
i treated myself
to gourmet cookies & cream
held the pint in my
warm hand
before heading off to work
slowly i dipped my spoon
around the edges as they
began to melt
took my sweet
sweet time
to fully savor each bite
there’s a bag of granola
sitting undisturbed
in my dusty kitchen
and the vegan yogurt
i bought
with the best of intentions
is now a day past due
but neither
of those saintly things
can lift my spirits
in the way
that a bit of ice cream
can do
