when we moved in, we

when we moved in, we
made a game out of lining the
kitchen cabinet

shelves and drawers – thirty years
of putting things away with love

on page three-hundred-
and-fifty-seven, you think
you’ve finally found
it – the recipe for the very
third rye bread
you will give
birth to in our little-

we take turns holding
each other inside, like new
words moistening on

lips, laughter unpacking in the

my dad is vacuuming

up the line of ants in
the kitchen, holding
back that fierce

there is nothing like
the sound of eggs

Mom’s hands bathed
in that eggshell glow

was inescapable,
and the tenderness
of wrists,
so naturally
interwoven

peaked
upper

of lemon, dancing
to the warm
perfume of
a slow meringue
baking, still
such cool tiles

generations of
