Oak Chair
By: Michael Foster

Oak chair, of dull design, alone
In drab-gray, dimmed chamber
Reluctant associate in silence
Unwilling partner in violence
Oak chair, arms with silver bracelets
Reflecting images of haunted faces
Crafted conductor of fire
Fated conduit of death
Oak chair, hinged with nails
Slender pikes hammered deep
Old rugged chair, of dull design, alone
