It’s funny how a chair in a picture,
in a house you used to walk in and out of,
like it was your own, like you lived there
because you almost sort of did –
it’s funny how that chair – just in the background
sitting there like a book or a shelf
or some other thing that has found its place there –
that chair, let me tell you, it’s a memory
hidden right there in plain sight.
it’s seen a lot, that chair has,
holds a lot of memories and if you look here
at this picture, maybe you can see them.
or maybe not, because after all,
it is just a chair. a piece of furniture,
can’t talk at all, or so you’d think.
but it’s okay. it’s okay.
