Heat.
Hot sticky cloying heat. Thick syrup, still, unstirred by breezes.
Hands under a cold stream of water as they rinse the cup.
Droplets drip dripping from finger tips.
Rising cool from the tray of frozen cubes.
Sticking; sticking frozen cubes to dripping finger tips. Sticking, freezing.
A brief fusing kiss then release.
Holding , dropping
Liquid, popping.
A cool drink.
