Jellyfish (2007) - film by Etgar Keret & Shira Geffen

A ship inside a bottle cannot sink
Or collect dust
It's nice to look at
And floats on glass
No one is small enough to board it
It doesn't know where it's heading
The wind outside won't blow its sails
It has no sails
Only a ship, a dress
And beneath them, jellyfish

Her mouth is dry though she's surrounded by water
She drinks it through the openings in her eyes
Which never close
When she dies, it won't be noticeable
She won't crash on rocks
She will remain tall
And proud
If you didn't kiss her on your way out
My love
If you can
Kiss me when you return

And...the ice cream man did come back, in the end.
