I bought a brand new couch once when I was 28. It cost $700.00 and was cantaloupe colored, replacing the couch on this books cover. That couch cost $40.00 from a thrift store and I never felt good about it. It had the aura of invisible bugs, dirt and undetectable smells. I was taking it to the dump, going slow on a dirt road along a lonely alfalfa field when I saw the grave. Rest in Peace, I thought, and grinned, always of a mind to make a novel picture. I unloaded it, took my picture and left, thinking I'd return when the light was more interesting. I didn't until months later and discovered my couch had become the Charter Object of a Dump: six couches, five mattresses, crummy chairs, recliners, carpets, tires, appliances, hefty bags. A chain link fence separating the field from the mobile home park down the road had been removed and that's what my dumb little joke had wrought. I spent a few weekends picking it up and filling up the 3/4 ton dumpster at my workplace, but I could never catch up.
