Potluck

Is that the fog creeping in
Or has the pot roast cooked too long?
The smoke detector clears its throat
To render its one-note song

The picture showed it firm and round
And such a delicate, golden brown
Not this flaky, coal-black mess
The disposal is gulping down

I’m an hour late with nothing to show
Except for a greasy sink
I think I’ll just turn the lights down low
And pour myself a drink
