Discovering that eggshell-colored
Kenmore refrigerators
and tall, brown, wooden kitchen cabinets
do not magically restock themselves

That Jiffy cornbread mix
after sitting in the back of
the pantry too long,

And pumpkin pie spice
and curry powder
do not last indefinitely.
Surprised to see that
they do indeed
bear expiration dates.
