A sign of the times you’d
say or intelligence applied
with novelty – to you it
makes two toasted
sandwiches agreeably

but to me it is a temperature
controlled clamp which
seals the ends of plastic
mesh avocado bags
quickly and efficiently

that is not to detract from
occupationally making
occasional toasted sandwiches
which it will when this
seasonal need ceases

chances of change
increasing proportionally
with estranged use and odds
the traditional owner will
stand on ceremony
