Domesticity (Ode to the Kitchen)

Ode to the Kitchen:

My friend, we first came together not by choice but because we were expected to. I so dug myself deeper and deeper into your comforting embrace that we nearly became one. When it came time to free myself of our long union I had to do so with force. It wasn’t your fault and I don’t blame you but you have courageously accepted the burnt of the lash back and I remain grateful. After years of our love toward one another you have recently been neglected. I, nor anyone, any longer occupies you hour after hour day after day but you have always and will always be there for me and because of that I will never forget you.
