I was told this was
the way to a man’s heart:
- Put on an apron and tie up your hair.
- Lock yourself in the kitchen for hours on end.
- Take out a loaf of bread, and slice it in two.
- Spread the butter inside, nice and even on all sides.
- Put the lettuce, the tomatoes, one on top of another.
- Add their choice of meat; ham, bacon, or chicken.
- And then slide everything into the toaster oven.
- Serve them the sandwich while it’s nice and hot.
- Keep quiet as they go on about their day.
- Clean up when they’re done.
It is their world, after all.
You are but a woman.
