The aftermath of the culinary experiment
was there for all to see
the kitchen floor amassed
with pieces of glass and porcelain
and bits of floating vegetable
swimming in a reddish brown sea
the ingredients of a magical masterpiece
created by the finest chef
now amassed in a puddle on the floor
Resembling a work from an Old Master or perhaps…Damien Hurst?
was the Microwave marvel a culinary critic or an artistic one?
Perhaps it hadn’t been wise to leave the spoon you stirred the soup with
in the teacup
