ice cream

(10/18, 1998)

First Place 


   windswept beach -
   ice cream wrappers flutter
   in the fishing nets
                        hilary tann


Second Place 


   ice cream
   once again
   stronger than the spoon
                           tom williams


Third Place 


   ordering ice cream
   to hear once more
   his gracias senora
                       Joann

          dinner with old friends
          still sharing
          each other's ice cream

               dad's vacation
               each night an ice cream sandwich
               on the boardwalk

                    kites overhead
                    child's ice cream melts
                    forgotten
