Leftovers mingle
With classic ingredients
In America

A popular dish claimed, yet
Stolen from Greeks and Romans

Usual suspects
Line the table and gather
Around traditions

Passed down for generations
Always served and made with love

Icebox


Once again
I find myself standing
Looking in to admire
Her inner beauty
Illuminating everything
That’s classically hidden
Behind a sturdy exterior
Made of steel

I begin to reflect
On polished effects
Side-by-side, sinking
Counter-depth
As temperatures rise
She remains cool
As a cucumber inside
Protecting my food

 

…and then there’s mine ❤️ Full of everyday condiments you gotta have.
