Waiting for the Oven to Warm

by David Maurice

I've got a dial
upon the stove
a dial that brings
warm from cold

my meat must be
cooked at the temperature

never think outside the beef box
experiment with vegetables,
you can't hurt their feelings.

If the day had hands
a lot of keyboards and tv remotes and game controllers
would be slapped out of a lot of complacent paws
I feel like it would look out for us

My cat knows only one song
and I never get tired of it

This is a fun little exploration while waiting. I enjoyed your day with hands and especially that bit about the cat knowing only one song. Thanks for this.
