The Duality of the Japanese Meal

by Joanne Marisa Leow
My wife was a runner
he says,
sizing me up for the chase
She's about your height
and your weight
                    (on me
would feel the same)

We cook
                    often
One cook,
the other slave
There can't be two cooks
in one kitchen
                    Well said
is it up to me
to disrupt the calm
wedded bliss?

10,000 books
     he says
Would you catalogue
     them?
I've been looking for
                                        someone.
