the oven & the fridge
they’d have you believe
the oven & the fridge
find each other repulsive

fridge white
oven black
fridge tall
oven short
fridge works hard to cool
oven works hard to heat

both undoing the other’s work
having it shoved in their faces
on a daily basis

but instead of denying their opposite’s
existence and purpose, they live and work
in perfect harmony

no more than a hum
