Cereal for Dinner

she lives alone
enjoying the freedom
of eating cereal for dinner;
there is no man around
requiring meat, a vegetable
and dessert for dinner.
A bowl and a spoon sit
on the countertop at the
end of her nutritious meal,
not dirty pans, spatulas,
cutting boards and the
odor of cooked meat hanging
in the air.
Life is so much simpler
this way, if only it weren't
so lonely.

Here here! Or is that "Hear hear!" Hmmm. And are those apples in your cereal? Hmmm, again.
