“Melting Ice Cubes in a Glass”

Such a stupid title for a poem,

I know you’ve been thinking it.

What could possibly be said

about melting ice cubes in a glass?

Well shut up and listen and

maybe you’ll soon discover

the secret wonder of such

a wonderless phenomenon.

Water floating in water and

water is made when the

solid meets the liquid and

interbreeds chaos between them.

So simple and boring but

snoring is not an option

when you plop five icebergs into

a fresh pour of the devil’s pop.

Hear that fizz fizz fizz and

soon after you’ll realize to

never write a poem about

melting ice cubes in a glass.
