an ode to theodore.

i know everyone and their designer-breed dog saw this sofa in elle decor this month, but i have mad, mad love for chesterfield sofas and nailheadery in general, so it warrants a totes ridix post. if you don't like it, go read someone's blog about how fast their kids are growing or something. otherwise, enjoy my first attempt at poetry in form other than the limerick or haiku:

oh theodore! my greedy eyes behold
your flax-y linen splendor, tufted curves,
intoxicating square nailhead trim
woe, as you seem strange in sectional form
insulting your perfect symmetry, for
my husband will not be moved, it will be
a sectional with chaise lounge or nothing
when we at last upgrade our furniture
of the sofa variety, but you
haunt my dreams, you bright earl of elegance
