"The Kitchen"

KITCHENS

A HOME IS MADE OF MANY ROOMS
TO REST, TO SLEEP, TO SHOWER
TO PLAY, AND READ, AND TALK A LOT,
DO HOBBIES BY THE HOUR

BUT THE KITCHEN, AH, THE KITCHEN
IS A ROOM THAT'S MADE OF DREAMS
OF FANTASIES...CREATED BY
A LOVE OF COOKING SCHEMES

TO TOUCH, TO SMELL, TO VISUALIZE
THE WONDERS THAT OCCUR...
AND THEN TO TASTE, AND THEN TO TASTE
RESULTS OF THINGS THAT WERE

AT ONE TIME JUST "INGREDIENTS,"
IN THEIR PLACES ON THE SHELVES
BUT BECOME A WONDROUS MIXTURE
AS THOUGH TRANSFORMED BY ELVES

YES, A HOME IS MADE OF MANY ROOMS
EACH ONE HAS IT'S PLEASURES
BUT THE KITCHEN IS THE BEST OF ALL
FOR FINDING HIDDEN TREASURES
