Considering the way I use outside,
I know I want a bench and table there.
I picked a set IKEA advertised,
but couldn’t get it shipped. I shopped elsewhere.

I found a better set and paid with card
(and started to expect it with some glee).
The vendor then wrote “Whoops – please disregard –
it’s out of stock two months or maybe three.”

I will not wait till winter, I then thought;
I cancelled and resumed my search online.
I found a metal-bottomed one, and bought
it for proportion and its clean design.

I liked the first okay, the second more,
but this one is the best, I’m pretty sure.
