the table

here is picture of table

It’s the zen-like brevity that makes this. I hear the resonance of the universe in this post and in this table. I want to be one with the table. I want to drape myself across the table and join the table in its table-bliss.

After all, it is THE table. It is the UR-table. It is the Platonic ideal of tableness. And all of this comes across in a mere seven words.

I don’t even think the table is actually for sale. I think the table just wanted to share itself with the world.

    But can you dinne, at this table?

    Also, be careful with the draping yourself across; the upended extension leaf lying there looks like it might be a little poke-y.

    I’m wondering if it’s some kind of attempt at Haiku. At least it’s not a French Prudential piece.

    Ah, I love your blog. I hate it, however, DTMR, because you nearly choke me to death with laughter each day.

    I wonder if it has an opinion about Obama’s healthplan! Will it argue back?

    Makes haikus look long-winded.

    Should this be read in a deep Russian accent? There aren’t any articles, after all, and doesn’t a stereotypical Russian accent leave out the a’s, an’s, and the’s? Don’t forget to roll your R’s, too!
