Some items spoke to me.
A peach said, “Please don’t touch me there.
I’ve bruises; can’t you see?”
A steak told me his grade was “A”
As though that might impress.
I wondered who his teacher was.
He’d passed a test, I guess.
Two soup cans hollered out to me
As I strolled by their shelf.
One said, “My label’s prettier,
If I say so myself.”
The other simply heaved a sigh,
“I’ll match him, ounce for ounce.
His contents are deplorable.
It’s what’s inside that counts.”
When I surveyed a row of brooms,
One asked me for a dance,
And if I’d been there all alone,
He might have stood a chance.
I gazed at fresh baked pies and cakes,
Just savoring the smell,
But not a one had words for me.
I’m sure that’s just as well.
You may think I was dreaming here,
But all of this is true.
My groceries do talk to me.
Don’t yours converse with you?
You do not have to be asleep
To hear their conversation,
Just wide awake and listening
With your imagination.
