A Friday Out of Standard Challenge with Izy

Izy teases us, and flatters us, and asks us to write about melting without using the words hot or cold, fire or ice.
She says she knows we can do it.
And here I am.
This is the 19th day of our own poem-a-month challenge at the Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, either in conjunction with or separate from NaPoWriMo which is also going on. Each poet can decide whether to post to one or to the other, or to both.

There was a dessert on the final voyage of the Carnival Destiny this year, a featured dessert called "Warm Chocolate Melting Cake". The men at my table had it every night, sometimes twice. So I am dedicating this poem to my husband Richard Schear, and to Professor John Scott Grey, and sending my sincerest empathy to John's wonderful wife Jo. We miss you both, especially at dinner time.

I'm reading this while having my first cup of coffee of the day. Do you think it's too early to have some ice cream now too?

KAY! - this is truly a GOOD poem. That it is at the same time a total tease causes me to cry "cruel and unjust!"

But in a nice way &~> YAM xx

The extra "no heat" caveat made this more of a challenge. This one melted my hot fudge to a puddle waiting to be lapped up off the floor... by me!! Delish, Kay! Amy
