“Staircase Has No Legs” – Poem By: Heather Whitley Gibson

supper has it’s last dinner
the door has a foot
the window has a flowerbed
it’s frame has a curtain
staircase has no legs
vacuum cleaner has rollers
chair has arms
even beds have heads
the T.V. takes a stand
the light bulb has it’s own shade
the pillows have shams
like purses have strings
clothes have price tags
every dresser has drawers
keys have hooks
wires have outlets
clocks, chalkboards, mirrors have faces
the table has it’s dressings
staircase has no legs

    nice imagery in this one as well. the staircase could relate to a number of things. one being as to a relationship, secondly it could be reference that the staircase needs to be developed as in nourishment as to books and words. i like trying to figure them out.
