Appliance Poetry

Posted May 8th, 2012 by Devin and filed in Writing

A couple of weeks ago we replaced our old refrigerator with a brand new shiny one. Before the delivery men carted the old one away, I took the above photo of its side.

Nearly fourteen years ago (holy crap, that’s a long time!) I first met my wife at a party at her place, which is now our place. As part of my attempt to woo her, I turned to the ever popular magnetic poetry set on the refrigerator. Considering the limited word palette, I don’t think I did too bad. The poem stayed on the ‘fridge all of those years, and now the words lay in a pile on my desk, as I think of something cool to do with them.
