Eva's Catalog of Household Objects


Of intense interest to Eva
Cheese graters for what they produce
Ice cube dispensers
Peanut butter
Frozen baby carrots
Queso or cheese

The unacceptable vacuum cleaner
With its seizure of territory
A sewing table alcove
Cushion of throw rugs
Doorknobs of necessity easily
Turned by paw

On top of the refrigerator
Enameled blue blucket
Haped with her stuffed toys
Environmentally minded she checks
Regularly the paper, cans, bottles
To be recycled
