My Old Couch 5.2001

last month i threw out my old couch

it was an old couch that i bought for 10 bucks

i replaced it with a nicer couch that i bought for 50

i couldn't lift it into my dumpster so i set it out on 8th street right outside my apartment

i figured someone would take it

weeks passed and no one took it

it sat there

eventually the pillows and cushions were taken, but not all at once

i walked by my old couch every day

on the way to my car or korean market or wherever

it became dirtier and darker

one day it was a turned over on its side and for the first time i saw

the underneath of my old couch

it wasn't long before it was riddled with graffiti and other shit

parts of the fabric were beginning to tear

my old couch, a couch that i sat on and slept on almost every day

for three years,

was decaying at a rate much faster than it would have in my apartment

i would walk by my old couch on the street and notice its condition

slightly more

deteriorated than the day before

i loved that couch

it was a part of me, but i didn't know it

it saw the best of me and also the worst

it was always there

i couldn't stop thinking about her on that couch and cuddling with her on that couch

and falling asleep with her on that couch

and all the movies that we watched together while sitting on that couch

i am sure there must have been a time where she fell asleep there and

i looked over at her sleeping and thought about how cute she is

i’m sure that must have happened

she was the first woman i kissed on that couch

and here it is riddled with graffiti and fucking shit and probably piss

from bums and god knows what else

each day i hope it will be the last that i have to see my old

couch, lying there, turned over on its side

alone
