The Ninth Circle of IKEA

Here we are
in the ninth circle of IKEA
surrounded by cushions
in neon colours and polka dots
searching desperately for a way out
but there is no way out
there are only arrows
pointing at other arrows
and at lamps
and bread baskets
and strangely shaped desk chairs
with made-up names
that only look Swedish
to people not from Sweden
and we shall be here forever
going around and around
sure our salvation
is over by the bookcases
or behind
the towering bins
of purple napkins
