That Words Bought

a free verse poem

photo by the author

I am sitting on the couch that my words bought.

I drove to the store and tried them all out (the couches),
sit, rest back, feel the upholstery on my skin,
approve or deny the long-lasting comfort
for an achy back, the lounge-ability for
a 6-lb dog and my aging self — a dilapidated, but lovely pair.
