      Things


      Chair

      Significant upon contact—
      knocked down,
      turned to
      then.

      *

      Bed

      Upon which a scattering of pillows,
      an impression.

      *

      Table

      That’s 2 by 4, 24 by 48,
      21 books side by side,

      10 sheets of paper,
      a fair scattering of envelopes—

      hard wood,
      a spot to rest one’s head.

      *

      Lamp

      That with which we scope
      for erasures.
