Take it easy, sofa. Put your feet up.
You’ve had a hard week’s work
taking my weight off.
Stretch your arms,
replump your cushions,
take the night for you.
Ground yourself. Scan your frame,
feel your feet on the old floorboards.
Have a catch up with the telly,
tell each other things you’d
rather not when we’re around.
