ode to a waffle iron

you were so hot

sizzling sweetly, clicking softly

you always let us know when the smack-your-lips were ready.

and then your handle completely fell off.

thank you for a decade of breakfast delight.

 

and now, another ode to another waffle iron:

 

dark green 4 door honda

you look so reliable, faithful, boring,

as though i may never even need to change your oil.

taylor calls you our new appliance….

 

i’ll happily call you waffle iron.

    That dark green 4-door Honda we had just before moving was the best car we ever owned. I actually miss it a little.
