Chicagoetry: New Fucking Frying Pan

New Fucking Frying Pan

Nobody tells me
Who I am.

Problematic in relationships
(Been a few years

Since the end of my last
Long-term commitment).

I want a fried egg?
I go to a diner
And order one or

I fry it myself.

It's about feminism:
In the early '70s, my mother
Decided she was going to get

A job.

"You want a fried egg?
Here's how you do it.
You want clean clothes?"
So now

I know how to do
All that shit.
Thanks, mom!

After (I'm guessing)
About six years with
My last frying pan I finally
Wore through the non-stick

Apparatus.

Needed a new frying pan.
Got my ass

A new fucking
Frying pan.

It's a beautiful thing.
