Fridge Space


Lately I have been a bit on the maudlin side due to the current happenings in my life - the prompt "fridge space", especially to a funeral director, might take on a different meaning than to most - so here is my attempt at:

Fridge Space
.
Chrome plated doors
of
glinting steel
welcome the sleeping
who can no longer
repeal
.
Shelving with rollers
that spin with ease
No, not the place
where you'd store sliced
cheese
.
Labels and toe tags
varied in size
a red flag, an ID source
not once a
disguise
.
Freon and motors
working in place
offer purpling people their own
"fridge space"

Your fridge and mine are not that different. I have carcasses in mine too. But mine go better with wine.

Very thoughtful! You couldn't very well have written about any other kind of "fridge," considering. Well done!

Whew. I had a conversation with a real person during the weekend about this same topic and still when I wrote my scribblings it didn't occur to me to see other than a food fridge. Great post!
