Departure Day

From Unpredictable Hue, the collection published in 2019.

Departure Day

Applauding
living room sofa
says goodbye
to the set
bed dresser chest and mirror
sold and avoiding

estate sale
negative success
leading to
a short sad
trip to the dump. Cat-shredded,
sofa still has hopes.

  1. The sofa in our family room is a complete and utter state. The cats have had at it and the “leather” is peeling off. We had no choice but to buy cheap when we emigrated as we had an entire house to furnish from scratch. We really need to invest in an upgrade but a) it isn’t top priority to go shopping for furniture in a pandemic and b) it is so incredibly comfortable to sit on. And so our banged up, messy looking sofa gets to keep living here.
