An Ode to my Stand Up Mixer


Avocado green,
and bought in '76
you improve my life
in ways promised
by Parade magazine.


I can't afford you,
10 speeds of mixing genius
from slow stir to rapid whisk
raising egg whites to cloud castles
a miracle of physics
force, equal and opposite reaction.


Hook, whisk, and paddle,
recieved in '99
when I, 17 and foolish
made pastries instead of homework.
