The Brown Recliner

Tha Brown Recliner

The Brown Recliner
houses my body
way to many
hours a day.
Does it tire of the pressure
of me sitting on it?
Does it, like me
long for freedom
to come and go at will
for pleasure or purpose?
Having worn arms
covered by a blanket
in stale air.
 
Does it care that
existence is limited
to a small corner
of the world?
Unaware breeze blowing.
Lilac bushes
fragrantly sweet
seen only through panes.
Unable to touch, smell
the outdoors, to feel
sunshine or bitter cold.
To be exposed to variety,
spice, in this thyme of life.
 
Will it someday crumble
beneath my weight?
Too much togetherness
not good for either of us.
Will it wear out,
tired of conformity to
circumstances imposed?
Longing for
a different outlook
instead of the same walls.
Or is it satisfied
with the status quo
sitting hour after hour
with the same view?
 
Is it aware of its usefulness,
or does it ponder a life lost,
unexplored, while
 brown and shabby.
Left indoors, forgotten
except by me.
