Kitchen Structures; Or Ode to Precariousness

January 27, 2008
On the bottom was the black coffee maker,
Dried coffee tears making trails
Down its sloping sides

On top of that was the boxed apple pie
The flaky baked crust looked so delicious
But dessert comes after dinner

Resting on the Saran wrap pulled tightly over the boxed pie
Was the Kleenex box
With its puffy eruption of tissues protruding

Then some wise-Aleck stacked a plate with two cold potatoes
From last night’s dinner
On the Kleenex box

I’m just trying to say that it was precarious.
