Zum Sitzen

Lamp, table, and bed, and a chair —

a chair for sitting.

Where I might even bring a thought

to a problem or two.

Draw up a chair, draw out a plan.

Process the plan by lamplight,

with your elbows on the table.

Then rest in the bed and dream

of sitting in the chair.

Regardless of room size,

have a lamp, table, and bed, and a chair —

furniture for furnishing answers to questions

… or at least a place to sit.

(David Garland, Furniture; von: Control Songs, 1986;
