My Favourite Spot

photo: Christine Donnier-Valentin
A chair, a sofa, a place to rest  
A place to rest, from voyage path 
A place, I like, I call my spot, my comfy rest    


A place before the tv set  
A place I sit, to overlook my abode 
A place sat, in a place called home  


Home sat in, home to be, on a sofa 
A place to cuddle, to hold, to love 
A place to share, a story I know 


Now who went a' called out the removal van
She packed my sofa, without my knowledge  
A' placed it under a bridge, on voyage's path 


She called it art, contemporary and modern   
A place where I sit, my place I love 
A place where I sit, to rest my mind 


Put it back! my favourite spot 
Damn you, put it back, no not at the Tate  
Back I say, to my favourite spot

  2. Interesting poem! I like how you mix together the present/future/past, e.g., "a place I sit...a place sat" and the kind of unconventional placement of commas (instead of dashes, maybe? the effect is that I get more of a sense of your breath with the commas). Then there's these really specific references to Tracey Emin and the Tate -- the latter, I understand, while the former gives the poem a really personal feeling all of a sudden, whereas the rest of it had been more universal/general.

  5. This does it for me. Inspired and inspiring. Would have been, even without Tracey Emin and the Tate, but with them... wow!
