Title: sofa 2
Post by: Chris Dudley on April 12, 2018, 05:49:51 AM
Sofa tuber sitting so still
Calm of the end of a day
Popcorn at hand, dog rooted too
Remote ready to ride.

But this is a movie, a DVD disk
Turning in the player
No need for remote ifd sunken deep
The movies holds the attention.

Until it doesn’t and head falls back
And hound is shoved to the side
Stretching out for an evening nap
The tuber closes its eyes.

A sofa’s a boat like a wooden shoe
Sailed to the land of Nod
A desperate dream of strange named scenes
From the blare of the television.

Sofa a dream, potato dream
Inert and still and unmoving
Sinking cushions, slack arms
‘Till the dog licks your face and you’re moving.
