Chrome plated Belling from the Swedish lowlands,
purring with pleasure at its rye bread thrill,
seeds of sesame,
browned to perfection on the shiny grill.
Teflon-coated sandwich maker hums light pleasantries,
gestating paninis in her smooth cream flanks.
Aroma of prosciutto,
wafts on the breezes of the Arno’s banks.
Dirty British toaster with its smoke-caked toast rack
leans to attention on its three worn legs.
Bread from Sainsbury’s,
the Co-op, Tesco’s,
groomed to be smothered by scrambled eggs.
