hot news flash

 

in your recipe for spousal stew

will you

even notice i’m on a slow burn?

please turn

me over so that i will brown

(heat down)

lightly and evenly all around

i’ve begun to sweat

broiled into a fret

will you please turn the heat down?!

 


Linking to dVerse Poets where we’re invited to write an “ovillejo” or tight little bundle (of yarn), which is untangled in the final line…

    My wife let’s me know to turn down the thermostat daily. You have our ears and warm our hearts.

    Ha.. isn’t the truth… after all those years together you would imagine that your thermostats are synced…
