A minute too long

smoke fills the air
as I pull a charred popcorn sculpture
from the microwave

Oh yes I have done this- great word capture. The worst part was the smoke!!

... And the smell! I once worked in a large building with a number of people whowe would start the popcorn then return to work. Once a month or so, we'd have to evacuate after the smoke set off fire alarms, then wait for the firemen to arrive, ambulance in tow, to search the whole building and pronounce it safe to re-enter. At least they got to wear masks!
