The Mag - 145

Welcome to 


It appears Tess has brought us something other than a famous painting- and we may do 
whatever we desire.  No strings or back story attached.

Terribly Enjoyable

This old red chair
Have you ever left a room 
full of people
and felt a chair  
offered more?

One old red chair?

A most ludicrous beauty
before my eyes-

this chair


alone in a room
full of social-less people

Comforting the tired
up righting the weary
This one old red chair

performing duty 
implying refuge
were there a mutiny.

If stains could talk on
the old red chair

they'd say simply
Spare the chair-
let go 
of some people.

Save what's worth keeping!

You have a way w/words! I definitely agree w/your sentiments!. If a chair could talk.... the history it holds.

"A most ludicrous beauty" What a great line! I agree that inanimate can call to us like that.

A wise chair, indeed.

Save what's worth keeping.

That practice is getting easier all the time.

Nice read.

"Spare the chair - let go of some people." Delightful. :-)

maybe the lone chair is taking a break, waiting for the people to come back and continue their restoration work on that room.
it sure does look like a chair that could really tell some wild tales!

I like the repetition of the red chair, and the color, throughout your poem.
