    you were my ice cream joy
    half sugar half symbolism
    my heart breathing in
    the easy lines of your smile

    such joys are made to melt away
    to dissolve like innocence
    but we stood: together,
    destinations alike

    and you were the fleeting soul
    of every numbered side street
    counting down to you; always
    to you, always to us. For now,

    you are my whiskey joy
    the pain I choose to endure
    exchanged for those I cannot
    distilling years of careful intent

    into a young man, empty eyes
    and an empty bottle screaming
    down the highway, counting,
    subtracting every mile marker

    from the impossible sum of separation;
    this love does not shine brightly enough--
    I cannot see it through the mist-- but it is
    my Mecca; perhaps enlightenment comes

    on arrival. And if I drew
    a picture of all happiness
    even now I would draw your face
    for you, dear, have been all my joys
