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

WOOO! Cold drama! You have created a new oxymoron I feel! I think of "frozen passion"!

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!
