We bought a table

Nothing adheres to the stainless steel table

Oil shicks off, no dough too sticky to clean

New space, kneading space, leaning space

4 more feet of kitchen, the hearth grows

And with it: room for my partner, cooking side by side

I don’t have to duck to see her smile

She’ll be here a while
