25. I Love ...Chairs

which would be a fairly safe observation
if one ever looked around the house.
Or the cabin.
Or the haymow.
Or our place in Newfoundland.

I may have more chairs than most.

I used to be particularly drawn to rocking chairs.
I still am of course.
It is a specific and separate love.

But I am also drawn
to any wooden kitchen chair that has
an interesting shape, a pleasing colour,
is worn ... or cheap.

I have a bit of a collection.
I have been asked 'how many?'
The answer is

It might be thought
that we have as many little buildings as we do
so we have somewhere to put
the chairs.


And why
would one love
so much?
I likes to sit.
