Safe Here

 

A Twenty Minutes poem.

 

Safe Here

 

The old wooden chair
The seat scarred
The back paint-spattered
Why are you still here
in this room
when so many others
your age or even younger
have loosened joints
legs shaky
presenting a face to the world
that’s faded and worn
or even worse
fallen to bits
destroyed by use
gone?
There is no answer for that
so let’s just say
it’s because
I like this chair
it seems to like me
and it will be safe with me
as long as it wants to stand there

  1. If you see something you like, just email me – claudiamcgillart@gmail.com . Or I’d say, come to my house, but I know that would be kind of hard for you! The things I post on the art blog are current at the time I post them and so I usually still have them around – the ones on other blogs are pulled from images of things I made in the past and most of them are sold or given away although not always.
