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.

Smoked Shrimp 🦐 🍤

We’re all just shrimps
Swimming from the abyss
Getting tossed into mix
After heads & tails are pinched
Then discarded & ditched

Rush through life too quick
Find your fingers sorely pricked
It’s a risk worth a few sticks
Eating rich with a flavor kick
Infusing your favorite dish

Simmer until you know it’s done
When bodies come together as one
