Mint Chocolate Chip

My mind
begins its decline
it takes its final dip
My tunnel vision
thinks only
about mint chocolate chip
Chips shaved to perfection
each bit in succession
I let each morsel
sink into the crevices
on the roof
of my mouth
until it melts away
and slides down
my throat
settling in my stomach
like a newly married couple
moving in.
I take another bite
and it begins again

--Madeline Vermeer
