Eager to enjoy its oeuvre,
you open the microwave - before it dings

but the display of time remaining
(for the popcorn, leftovers, or a cup of tea)
remains, blinking, incessant

tonight, tomorrow, through your vacation;
verily, the microwave holds out
a lonely numeric vigil

waiting, hoping, dreaming
that one day you'll return,
to become useful one again.
