Awwwwww buddy. Extremely well written and I love how the imagery just gave even more to the underlying emotions. And somehow a floral plate makes it seem more tender even. How funny now that I think about it. Well done!
I got a kick out of this one. I too am single and I just got a counter type dishwasher that leaks at the hook-up. It does just enough for me and my cat's dishes in 2 days. Yeah, but not too much excitement for there are still the cookware to do by hand.
enjoyed your mind on paper.
Clever to the point and a smile in voice for the image left and the message sent. It is the skill set you share, seeing the ordinary and giving it life, the gift is still special, may your day still be full of the few dishes and the ability to write about, best day out there.
You have said so much, in such a lyrical way, about your single existence. I don't know what I would improve. I've still resolved not to give all my 6's to the same people, however, as I think I need to reserve some to encourage newcomers to the site. Well done with this one!

Thanks so much, my friend, and I'm sorry for the delayed response.
A great little free style big M. I notice you highlighted (happily) in the footnote, but your voice in the poem came across as a little lonely. Hope there is no Freudian defense mechanisms at work here. Great write. AJ.
It does sound rather simple and appealing. As I read this it puts the alternative in my mind and it isn't simply double this, it's more like four times. Interesting, it isn't two becoming one, it's two becoming four in reality. You're eating what you want too.... mikey
