M i c h a e l a   R i d g w a y




the pan hisses


the enamel handle

is too hot and too green


the moon spills

across the kitchen floor


magnetic letters on the fridge door

have rearranged themselves


(something about revolting swollen

sausages please remove)


I clean the pan, mop

up the moon


and start again
