Toaster Oven

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 StarburstWalmart
–no squiggly–
the toaster oven is purchased:

Black+Decker , NutBD and & deleted:

founded in 1910 by S. Duncan Black &
Alonzo G. Decker, headquartered in
Towson, Maryland: invented the electric drill.


because the drill from the
corporation still drills
30 years hence, maybe more.

toast: panis tosti
the Welsh rarebit delicacy:

buck rabbit with an egg on top; variations include Scotch or English rabbit; Little Nemo introduced in Dream of the Rarebit Fiend.

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 —
ductile domesticity.

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 —
small world,
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:

toast with butter, toast with jam, beans on toast, peanut butter toast, Texas toast, egg and soldiers, toad-in-a-hole, French toast, cinnamon toast, milk toast, toast Hawaii, prawn toast — or any open sandwich really.

You already know my favorite.
