Poetry from Sushama Kasbekar


New Fridge

Dear New 'Fridge,
You are beautiful
You shine like a diamond
You make ice instantly
You are a genius 
You are enormous, efficient
But you devour things completely
You make me bend down to you
Almost in reverence it may seem
You are a hard taskmaster
You cavernous monstrous machine
You are giving me back breaking tasks
I am at times confused and at times concerned
Where's the butter, where's the cheese?
Did we finish the curry yesterday or is it lurking in some deep corner
Of your unfathomable depths
I scramble to seize
You have brought me to my knees
Now don't bring me to my dotage
You shiny silent efficient machine!
