An Exchange – A Poem

From within pockets of misfortune,
stowed away in trousers of ill will,
there are morsels of syrupy bliss.

Today, I made my first vegan waffle.
For nine years, I’d battled with
malfunctioning makers.

The grid finally
allowed me to knife off
a cornbread cake.

The loss of a colleague;
a dog-eared recipe.
