"domestic decay"

i burnt my toast again
'cause the toaster's broken

so is the iron
the washing machine
the mixer
the vacuum cleaner

years of use
years of neglect

get it fixed, you say
they don't want to be fixed

get new ones, you say

who wants something new?
it'll just break, too

i'll eat this burnt toast with jam
while the appliances glare at me

and maybe if i ignore them
they'll go away
