Popcorn Popping (comments are always welcome)

Popcorn Popping

How do I pop thee? Let me count the ways.
I pop thee to the depth and breadth and height
my bowl can hold. The ovens blaze
creates, so like a god, your puff of white .
I pop thee to the level of every day's
unheard of need, by sun and fluorescent light.
I pop thee freely, as a master might.
I pop thee purely, with only hot air.
I pop thee with the passion put to use
in my mistakes, and with my business care.
I pop thee with a love I seemed to lose
with my burnt attempts. I pop thee with chocolate,
BBQ, Ranch, all the flavors of my life; and, if God is no villian,
I shall but pop thee better with chicken bouillon.
I'll leave you a note in the freezer.

That sound you hear is Elizabeth Barrett Browning turning over in her grave!

My heart beats in poetry. I think in rhythm and dream in rhyme.

Give me a crit! I can take it!
