B. B. 12.4.1777 Lyon / D. 5.11.1849 Paris
Reduced circumstances

Garbage truck eats sofa
first one end, then the other
cotton cover (burgundy), rips, stains
(on one arm resembling blackened sidewalk gum), foam, stuffing, staples, frame
in three bites swallowed.

What seductions, what aftermaths
what interludes wore out that sofa?
Chelsea garbage truck eats sofa.
Or none
or none to compare in effulgence or frequency with the burgundy-creaking before during and afters its owner plotted
while reclining on the sofa
perched or sprawled, jumping up to get stuff, pet stuff
toss more imaginings into the maw.
Garbage truck eats sofa
worn out by wild thoughts and consequent spillage
by the spastic pining that spikes a graph
of continual low-level cat damage.
