scents rich (or making dinner)

from the gas stove
a sizzle

[move quick –
and stir the wok, flip the
frying tofu,
while the rice pot
boils]

the table is set and your hands
folded
compliment the
napkins bowed
carefully in half

gas flames flicker off,
settle down,

scents rich then fill
noses with a quiet
anticipation
