An Oven

by Joan Serratelli

My oven is broken
I want a new one


I will buy it with my own money

No, He says- we need other things

MY MONEY- cash

No- you haven;t really cooked
in years

I have not cooked because

I don"t like to eat
I usually don not care

But certain things NEED to be baked


No....No oven

It took me years to buy a toaster
but I got it

I realize that mt nutrition habits
are G-D awful
But I want an oven use it

I will cook


It will make me happy

I will win this round

I will buy an oven

It is important
to me

Silly...Not ti me

I feel the heat in more ways than one. Nicely expressed!
