NaPoWriMo #6

Household Verse Item #5

Suggested by @Diana605

Garlic Press

Shape of a pliers
bred with a gavel.

Slip a clove in place
then press down
on handles
to crush
through stainless steel
until pungent, moist bits
cling outside
their late prison cell,

a cloven clove
forced into
and out of hiding
then thrown in
with the usual suspects
and sautéed,
eventually to be judged
in the court of public opinion.

Though the verdict was cast
by its first dubious association
with humans
who used it to their own ends
in a device created
for its bitter destruction.
