The radiating red-orange
— photons of thermal vibration —
conduction and convection
within the conventional oven
the baking element still functions,
the broiler element broken
two years gone,
so with my 25% discount from Walmart
the toaster oven is purchased:
, and & deleted:
because the drill from the
corporation still drills
30 years hence, maybe more.
glorious, gooey, broiled-
toast: panis tosti —
the Welsh rarebit delicacy:
Bread near the Paleolithic fire:
a historical hot-button issue for various cultures:
arse-kneading dough as a love potion,
advertising by the womb of the nation
passion in the wheat-fields;
heads rolled to get sticks out of bread —
Element topology morphs toasting
stones, into forks, into cages, into
my toaster oven.
The life hack of turning
the regular toaster sideways
results in unacceptable
carcinogenic blackened bottoms
and barely-melted cheese crowns.
Sting asserts in An Englishman
in New York, “I like my toast done
on one side.”
I have been eating British
toast since childhood —
lands butter down 62% of the time.
The Maillard reaction,
the non-rational joy of fire
near the staff of life — more popular
than sex during matins —
is nearly endless, exempli gratia:
You already know my favorite.
