Freezer Door

Written by: Vincent Procopio

swinging quietly open
hinges humble
in unimposed servitude

the low hum of the fan
beckoning indifferently
a mere acquaintance

behold the boxlike tundra
frozen land of peace
molecules forever at rest

reluctantly yielding
of flavor and convenience

silent cubes
cocooned in color
filled with savory promise

in cryptic silence
close the door please
