Bad Chair

by Thomas F. Wylie

blue stuffed oversized
seat cushion angled back
crushed years of weight
refuse to lift

air of sour body odor
repels return
cat hair dog hair
blood stains

never erase
what remains

big hard wide arms
hold and grip hands
that slap and bat

cry scream spit
held over big knees
oozing blood from
bitten lips

roll and toss
on a rugged floor
plea and beg

no more!

squirm turn burn
dash crash slash
get out get away

from the chair
that never cares
