What advice does the refrigerator offer a poet?

Open me.
Take what you can use.
Make something fresh of the left behind.

A fine meal, a fine poem always knows
what has been taken out. What is only hinted at.

  1. This One Time (6)

    Must we heat up everything that falls our way?
    As if in effigy of a favorite relative
    the hats are flying off the shelf

    once so carefully arranged
    they make a madness out of the simple floor

    and all the silly ribbons smile at the child
