the table

Green felted

Lined with white numbers and letters,

Black and red checkered board,

Round spinning wheel;

Has the best odds in the house.

Wooden, cloth-covered, and set for dinner

In the room of fights, fits, hugs, and conversations till three a.m.

(Sometimes playing gin rummy with gin and gingers)

We gather to pray, to study, to drink, and to feast.
