poem-the old fridge died February 4, 2020

You,

the mechanical miracle worker,

refuse to accept extermination.

Armed with Youtube videos

and an amp metre

you search for solutions,

find the secret place

frozen peas hide,

discover three decades of debris.

Determination pays:

You sit back, satisfied,

when hum and chilled air,

declare life.

Death defeated.

Obliteration blocked.

Cold box immaculate in revived vitality.

    There is poetry in all things, isn’t there?

  2. Hey, a kindred spirit! I’m a Canadian teacher living in England. Also love to write. Also share my home with, amongst others, two incorrigible mutts. Just started my first ever blog and it’s great to connect with so many other like-minded souls floating about in the ether.
    Thanks for taking the time to read my poetry. I’ve had a quick look at your own and our styles aren’t totally dissimilar in some aspects. However, your site is so vast I’ll need to navigate my way through it tomorrow because it’s late here and I’m still marking essays… ugh!
    All the best.

    • A decade of poetry and blog writing makes for a lot of stuff on this site, that’s for sure. Thanks for taking time to introduce yourself. My condolences on the essay marking…
