Vanilla Mochi

by Poisoned Twinkles

(A/N: Mochi is a Japanese rice cake made of glutinous rice pounded into paste and molded into shape - Wikipedia.)

fingers holding dessert:
yes, i once had this mochi ball
with which i tried to
put a maraschino cherry on top
(glazed red, pop it in your mouth?)

but it just slipped down quite lusciously
so i tried something else; i added a rainbow
i sprinkled my hopes
my dreams

but the sprinkles fell messy
cascade of colours disarrayed

nothing worked

therefore, i just bit the mochi ball
(solemnly, in fact)

and to my great surprise,
vanilla ice cream was inside

no, it didn't taste like
syrup of peptic caramel
it didn't taste any sweeter
than normal gelato
or a sundae of creamy wishes

but it was definitely more unique.
