In this chair

Wood and cloth
Curved and straight
So many angles
Which one is right?
Patterns and colors
Red upon red
Flowers he laid
Upon his death
Rocking
Then still
Silence
In the air
Among chaos
Stillness echoes
In this chair
When the room
Was on fire
And the chair
Was silenced
A great man
Whose voice
Echoed freedom
Died
And the chair
Is quiet
Abraham Lincoln
1809-1865
