Chairs above the Danube

Those two chairs were not really
all that ugly. Too bad the springs
protruded from them and the upholstery
was so hopelessly filthy.
But chairs they were, all the same. And right for that apartment.
So we carried them, mostly on our heads,
from Orlay Street, across the former
Francis Joseph, now Liberty, Bridge, to Number 2 Ráday Street where P. lived
at the time (as some of his poems will show.)
