UPTOWN SETTEE IN A DOWNTOWN FUNK

I saw the sign on a pole.

Missing sofa—

Please call.

I envisioned some grand settee

Off on a journey,

Its wooden legs

Taking it across town.

Had it been unhappy at home?

If anyone had known,

Would therapy have helped?

Perhaps a furniture intervention.

Psychologists would say

Re-upholstering

Could bolster the ego.

It’s sad

When furniture

Suddenly goes

Astray.
