sometimes you have to

sometimes you have to speak with

the wall, the chair, the floor

let’s face it
they’re better company
than most


the wall


it will support you
should you ever need to lean

the chair

come on…

it will comfort you
should your feet get tired

the floor

that lovely, sweet floor…

it will be there to greet you
should you

…oopsiy daisy…

stumble and fall

so why bother
with mere mortals
(those peasants!)
who have nothing to give

run your fingers
along the back of a chair

stroke the wall gently
color it with care

kiss the floor
several times if you must

and while you’re at it
look up at the ceiling
for it too was always there
