snapshot of the kitchen

The sides are now a sickly, patchy yellow

A dotted, patchwork like smearing of great disgust.

Vague pictures of freckled eggs

Or setting skies where clouds lap over one another;

If they were yellow that is

Crop up as cloth meets dull surface.

Pre Ordered products and the rhythmic sound of scrolling,

Eyes fleeting across electronic pages for realistic advice

That does not cost yellow itself.

The artificial sharpness of lemon bleach,

A stench that makes your mind go woozy

Blankets your other senses in a biting numbness that is hard to fade out.

Cupboards scratched with age and rough handling stick

Out from cobbled walls,

The palette of colour not fluid in the slightest;

Earthy brown, creamed white and morbid yellow,

A dash of black and blue running through this puzzling display

Thanks to appliances

Brought on a whim.

stained and unable to revert back,

the tap continues to run slowly,


The outside disruptance does little to affect the inner workings.

There is a woman amongst this silent chaos of unnatural tints

And violent tinges.

Hair scraped back, flecked with clear grey

Strong against dwindling brown; walnuts.

Short and warm with the eyes that span time

Rapid footprints signal the copycats coming to play

Chided as the oven glows faintly

And scorches the air to a crisp.

Button nose is not quite correct; a penny more favourable,

Crinkles from laughter and stress that frame a

Face still beautiful despite generational shifts in standards,

Wearing only what she finds good

Without a care for if it suits her red skin,

Easy sunburn.

A mismatched green and gold,

Gypsy jewelry that completes the view.

Crosses that lack a faith and

Yellow roses that steal the sun’s hue.

The room of jam tarts, pre rolled pastry and china horses

A marrying of old and new conventions,

She says that it is nice to know

That she is not quite dead yet,

And to get out of the kitchen.
