in the pan
let it melt
some dry mustard.
lots of options
have you tried
Maybe a few more times.
It’s a process.
When the color’s right
and the cheese is melted
and there’s that smell.
Are you going to make one now?
This artwork is of a grilled cheese sandwich. Although in some sense mundane, it can inspire significant poetry.
For example, a poet could write about a single parent who can’t cook, who makes a grilled cheese sandwich for their child.
Or, a poet could write about a homeless person, who eats a grilled cheese sandwich at a shelter.
Or, a poet could write about a latchkey child, who makes themselves a grilled cheese sandwich when they are home alone.
Through a grilled cheese sandwich, a poet could explore issues such as single parenthood, homelessness, and latchkey children. There are also other issues that could be looked at.
P. S. Have you thought of a poem that uses a grilled cheese sandwich? If so, why not send it in to M. Sakran for consideration? It might get published on this blog. See the Considerations page for more information.
