long past the calendar date
to celebrate a dear friend’s milestone birthday
as if no time has passed.
“our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time.”
This toaster, which sports a 4.4-star rating on Amazon, works just as well with frozen waffles and multi-grain bread as it does for Pop-Tarts and bakery-fresh bagels. All you have to do is program the toaster with what food you want to crisp, the state it’s in (frozen, fresh, etc.), and what color level you want it to be when it pops out.
Once set, the countdown clock will start and an alarm will ring to let you know when it’s done. There’s even a built-in mechanism that adjusts to the size of whatever you’re toasting to ensure all of your food pops out high enough to grab safely with your fingers. The Revolution toaster doesn’t require any pre-heating time, and the company claims it’s 35 percent faster than other versions.
this stresses me out just reading about it,
i would need a tech geek to come with the toaster.
“television is like the american toaster, you push the button and the same thing pops up every time.”

today, someone decided
to quietly dump every single puzzle out onto the floor
mix the pieces together
then head up to the loft to play.
it was left in a perfect state of tobubohu
but somehow i couldn’t think of that word
at the moment of discovery
tomorrow we will work on it together
and with it will come a new word.
part of speech: noun
origin: hebrew, unknown
1. a state of chaos, utter confusion
examples in a sentence:
“The mayor’s unexpected announcement left the press in a tohubohu.”
“After recess the students were always in a tohubohu.”
anyone else ever achieve this perfect state?
yeti and olive – one waves hello, one nods goodbye
“nature is forever arriving and forever departing, forever approaching, forever vanishing;
but in their vanishings there seems to be ever the waving of a hand,
in all her partings a promise of meeting farther along the road.”
