the chair

in the middle of a meadow
in the middle of the ocean
in the middle of the universe
in the middle of everything
there, not far away
a chair just sits
the wind blows
birds sing
branches sway
every creature
sings, sways, and blows
its story
a chair
old and torn
tired and rugged
a chair
the bumps
over the meadow
the creases
over the ocean
the buttons
over the universe
the chair
over everything
it’s a chair
it tells its story
like the wind
every creature
it’s just like them
in the middle of everything
it’ll wait
for its lover
it’ll wait
for that
other chair
