The Hanging Kitchen


The Hanging Kitchen

A month ago they tore down a building four numbers south to ours and left hanging in the air an old style kitchen with white wooden closets and round handles. The rumors say that late at night a woman aged around 55 goes up to the remaining building’s roof, slides down a rope to the hanging kitchen, takes out a duster and a water sprayer, cleans the surfaces from the daily construction dust and disappears. They say she can’t bear the thought that the whole neighborhood would say her kitchen is dirty. In Jerusalem I had a similar old style kitchen, long and narrow with a window at the end, every here and there it was too tight, every here and then a thought came up to break the wall facing the fridge, but to break an entire building just to expand the kitchen never crossed our minds, and at a hindsight good thing it didn’t.
