Miles Aldridge, A Drop of Red, 2001

Betty Crocker

I know what you’re thinking

So go ahead:

Indict me for carving myself into my kitchen,

Impeach the blank calendar hanging

on my fridge. I closed my curtains years ago,

cut out my coupons, kept the chaos away

by keeping my family full

I did what I could, and I do what I can

with these standards I cannot stand: you want

quick/super-moist/easy

Now is that a woman or a cookie?

If the question bothers you

Close the kitchen door

Crack the eggs, and find a chore

— Délani Valin
