Kitchen Aid: Poetry Prompt

This week's writing prompt takes its cue from today's poem by Jeremy Downes. (So go read that poem if you haven't already!)

Write a poem (or short story or memoir piece or essay) that takes place in a kitchen. Be sure to mention at least some of the various gadgets, appliances, furniture, and tools found there. Try to avoid food references--instead, focus on all of the non-food details, including descriptions that use the 5 senses (you don't need to lick the sink!).

Extra Brownie Points for making this poem a conceit (extended metaphor), a semi-surreal vision, or a piece that is not actually about the kitchen.

As always, have fun! See what you come up with. And remember, during revision, the prompt requirements go by the wayside!
