My Kitchen Floor - Poem by Gerald Hanners

In an attempt at style,
I recently installed floor tile
in my home kitchen.

What I like best about it
is not the tint nor the way it's grouted,
but the echo effect it produces.

I can boil and bake,
preparing casseroles or cake,
while singing in full voice!

Flying back, like migrating Summer birds,
my own porcelain reflected words
give the illusion I am not alone.
