The Kitchen

A muted hum is emitted by the refrigerator
water from the faucet
babbles
in the sink.
The highlighter-yellow parakeet
ruffles its feathers and
twitters along,
adding a melody to the monotonous rhythms.
Boiling bubbles flow over the kettle’s edge
and the bird shrieks as steam hisses and the water disappears.
A salad spinner rattles,
dismembered lettuce and spinach swirling
like an insane kaleidoscope in shades of emerald and envy.
Roasting chicken’s warm aroma flows from the oven
and fuses together with all the other aspects of the kitchen,
suggesting that dinner is almost ready
It welcomes you, radiating warmth
And the comfort of home.
