You Are Beautiful and You Are a Chair

“A chair has waited such a long time to be with its person. Through shadow and fly buzz and the floating dust it has waited such a long time to be with its person. What it remembers of the forest it forgets, and dreams of a room where it waits — Of the cup and the ceiling — Of the Animate One.” —”A Chair,” from The Very Thing that Happens by Russell Edson
