Lazy Boy

I couch words carefully,

since going futon- free,

and so far,

it’s a workable arrangement


putting only those on the table

I can afford to misplace

–and look for frantically

when they escape me–

I don’t miss the stuffing

padded, and made of throats

I don’t miss the Nook

preferring hardcopy

I don’t miss having trouble


and I don’t miss the

burlap sham

that encased it…

worn out sham

the frame is the only real part of it

I miss…

the brighter weave where it once rested,

a reminder.
