Robert M. Katzman’s Amazing Story:  http://www.differentslants.com/?p=355

© 4/17/12

Spring 1966

Sixteen

Need a job

Wandering hot streets

I spy

Baskin-Robins!

A sign:

Help Wanted

Mandarin Chocolate Sherbet

Mint Chocolate Chip

Dark Chocolate

Jesus!!!

Panting

I chance it

Walk in

And see her

An older woman

Twenty-two

Short

Big brown eyes

Built

Name tag: Miriam

Ok

They don’t have to pay me

She sits at this little desk

Nice legs

There’s a line

Bunch a mopes

I can do this

I inhale the Chocolate

Failure?

Not an option

My competition

Peels off

Crash and Burn

She’s tough

Yet soft red lips

Soft everything

My turn

She’s on the phone

Muttering angrily

About Pierre

Her

“God-damned

French-Canadian

Catholic

Husband”

Leaving her

Again

To clean up the

Damn Freezers

Alone

At night

Her

Beautiful face

Steaming

Her

Stunning chest

Heaving

Hell

I’ll pay her

To

Work here

Wait a minute!

Her

God-damned

French-Canadian

Catholic

Husband?

Then I see it:

The shining

Gold

Jewish Star

Embracing

Her

Fine

Smooth

Kissable

Neck

An idea looms

This is War

She likes my application

Asks me:

When can I start?

All the others said:

Right now!

I said:

Sorry, Ma’am

Not until

After

Passover

She looks at my

Dark eyes

Dark hair

Olive skin

She senses:

Revenge!

I get the job

God Bless the Catholics!

I get

 To clean out the

Big Freezers

All

Alone

With

Miss Jewish

Double-Scoop

Ice Cream Queen

1966

After her store closes

Every Night

We get

Really cold

We get

All wet

Her tight uniform

Unbuttoned

Just enough

Her sweet sweat

Trickling

Down

Down

Down

I’m dying

And still

Still!

I even get

Paid

To do this!

At night

Exhausted

I fall into bed

Dreaming

As always

 of this:

Giant

Sugar

Ice cream cone

Waves

Of

Creamy white

Liquid Marshmallow

Over-Flowing

 the

Rounded edges

Dark Chocolate

Sprinkles

Raining from the Sky

And

Always

Seductively waiting

Within it

Big brown eyes

Staring up at me

Arms outstretched

Soft red lips smiling

Is

Miriam

Not very satisfying, but very good. Imagery is superb! Keep the dreams alive.

Geez Bob, I’m surprised you ever got ANY work done in your many jobs over the years!

;~}

It’s a breezy poem; cleverly construed. And yes, I agree with J…above: the imagery is over-the-top. Who said truth is boring? At least, not your truth….does truth become more richly concentrated with each passing year, one has to wonder in reading this memory-byte (or should I say, lick) of your life from the sixties.

Miriam, probably long divorced, would be 74 today. Difficult to imagine.
