Dairy Queen



Fourteen, maybe fifteen

Pippi Longstocking with breasts

Braids, freckles

A gap-toothed smile

Orthodontist, spare this one

"Can you watch my bike?"

I can

A natural gait

An athlete's body

Enters the store

Returns with her prize

Soft-serve ice cream nipple

Tongued vigorously, unselfconscious

Blue sky eyes

Sunshine hair

Venus in cut-offs

A fountain of blood

In the shape of a girl

This is the bike Lance Armstrong used on his road to recovery after his cancer treatments started. It is a little wider and more stable ride than your conventional racing bike thus enableing him to peddle during his dizzy spells. Unknown to the general public, the red food dye in his daily strawberry shortcake blizzard was the cause of his tumor. Wide tires also help during brain freeze.
Oh wait, this is not part of your series. Never mind.
