what's this weird straw for?

i was a 4 year old child
adorned with spaghetti strap
tan lines the first time;
i'd tried a slushy.

to this day
that memory
is cemented right
in the proper
lobe.

obviously,
my hands were small
at that age, which meant
my fingers hand intertwined
themselves -- around the oversized
cup to create the perfect finger
peek-a-boo

it's not the brain-freeze
that's familiar to me
but the delicious
flavours that accompanied
this delectable firework
mouth party -- induced
by one icy liquid
confection.
