Going in Style

The poor defenseless pillows. All are dead,

karate chopped by decorator Ted

who watches kung fu movies on the sly

when he is drunk or when he’s gotten high.

The couch is next and then the table lamp.

He’s in the groove, but then a sudden cramp

in his karate hand. The baby grand

is saved, but not for long. His other hand

descends. Its back is broken just like that.

He turns around. He’s looking for the cat

when the photographer arrives on scene.

“I’m speechless, what is there to say. It is

amazing. Magnifique ! What you have done

is sure to be repeated. Every one

will want their furniture destroyed as soon

as I have photographed this room.”

The praise is graciously accepted, Ted

has done his job again. The room is dead.
