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.
