Sugar Coated Shit

It used to bum me out
seeing an old man
alone with an ice cream cone
maybe in a park
maybe on a bench
I would think
this old man knows
ice cream is
the weakest consolation
for having no one left, or
no one ever
Last night I ate
two pints
and this morning
made sure
not to
look in the mirror.
