prompt: “Chocolate Milk :0)”

It’s kind of funny that this one is a little sad, seeing as the prompt was from my childhood best friend…a friendship I have happy memories of

One of my fondest memories is blowing into a plastic cup of chocolate milk with a bendy straw. The cup’s plastic label was peeling and filled with tiny air bubbles that I would poke, that were the raised head of some cartoon character.

To me, this one encapsulated the burden of youth. Nicely done.

Your second stanza is my absolute favorite.

    I’ve been rewriting a lot of these poems for consideration in my Typewriter Poetry chapbook…and that second stanza you mentioned has been getting on my nerves. I’m never sure if I should keep it or tweak it or leave it as is. Thanks for letting me know you enjoyed it–now I know to keep it!
