Inspired by Michael Malachi’s love for furniture and haikus.
I did buy this piece
With my own money from a job
She holds my secrets
I bought this secretary’s desk with money from my first paycheck. I bought it about four years ago with money earned from cleaning cars in Minnesota. We replaced two knobs, some fancy ones that we found at the local Habitat for Humanity, and give the wood a drink with wood polish about twice a year. Other than that, I have left her as I found her. Inside are many trinkets! And lots of paperwork I need to sort through – an odious task.
Either way, I love this piece, and I love Michael’s works, too (which he upcycles!!) Make sure to check him out.
