The Future of Tomorrow

westinghouse halves the time a roast needs
you can dream your dream house into being

general electric keeps the peas frozen
tidy the house your lifestyle chosen

hoover the carpet
mr. clean the floor
have dinner ready
husband’s at the door

eyelids, feet heavy
get water and speed
now choke down twenty
you’ve got mouths to feed

grandma managed to live this way
such things belong to yesterday

heart is sunken
anchored below
catalogs and
credit card bills
bought all of it
everything
all i could want
nothing i need

mobile phone connects my work to my home
my boss is with me wherever i go

grandma is so sweet
so behind the times
shame she can’t reckon
operating phones
her life would be swell
with just such a tool
