Can’t Do Without

Can’t Do Without

The lamp cord snakes across the floor
curled around itself
on its way to the outlet
Secure in the knowledge
that no matter how unsightly
a home décor magazine may tell its readers
such intrusions into design
can be
and ought to be deleted
or hidden
well, the highly collectible
beautiful and valuable
necessary accent to the room
fine example of good taste
pale blue ceramic
sitting on the end table
lamp won’t work
without its cord
