A Window Into Somewhere Else - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

a lone chair
lived in a tiny room
with only a table for company

the room
happy with itself
slowly fell asleep

the walls had ears
they were good listeners
their lips were sealed

a window always
looking outside
longing to run away

the painting
a window
into somewhere else

the room
wondering what the room above
was thinking

the stairs
in love with both rooms
at once

the room
bored out of its mind
'Ah...at last...a human! '

the humans act
as if the room and its companions
were mere props in their play

the human
sat
'Oooof! ' cried the chair

a cat
keeping the room company
now the humans had gone
