“THE PAINTED CHAIR”.BY STEVEN BENSON

Quirky remnants live on…well, in their half-life. “The Painted Chair”.Lets write a poem because I forgot my camera(Images and writing; not incommensurate but mutually enhancing and enriching!).

———————————————————

So, my pen turns into camera; and I spy:

OUTSIDE

“Welcome” (to ‘The Painted Chair'”-alluding to the Van Gogh painted chair?; is that the one with pipe on it ?); the sign beckons inside, from the outside(the cobbled courtyard)

A chair with a rainbow of coloured walking sticks. Again, almost van Goghian in their composition; an installation, unwontedly placed.

Plant-pots, with flowers

A random fat candle on a tiny table

Assorted belated remnants(is that a tautology?)in a whicker-basket.

Hearts painted on triangular-shaped cloth.

INSIDE

Faded(?real) roses, oxo cubes, everything divorced from its original commodity value, on grounds of disuse/age.

An ancient heavy-keyed type-writer.

Too much to remember or describe

——————————————————————-

The remnants live again in the Bluecoat, Liverpool, courtyard shop,”The Painted Chair”:)
