Old Kitchen


By Ashley Frazier

the old kitchen was old.  It’s always been old.  The floor, I remember it was a flat mix of reds, oranges and yellows, made of linoleum.  Linoleum is easy to clean, but always looked old.  The cabinets were a good match for the floor.  They were wooden, but an orange color of wood.  On the linoleum floor, there was a black jagged mark where a knife had fallen.  No matter how many times we cleaned that floor, that black, jagged mark was always there.  The new kitchen had porcelain floor.  Porcelain so the knives could not pierce through when they fell.  The old kitchen was old.
