Disclaimer: As much as I wish I did, I cannot honestly claim any rights to Star Trek XI. I really want Kirk's chair, though.


It is a lovely chair.

Sleek white curves

Thin black cushions

It was not designed for comfort (although that comes as a side effect)

But authority.

An object of power,

He seats himself and forgets

That he has been disgraced

That by all rights, he shouldn't even see this chair

He sits and feels (remembers?) power

It doesn't flood him but gently swells

And ebbs against his heart

He settles and looks out

Everything seems to fall into place

But only for a moment

The timing isn't right

And he gets reprimanded by a simple

"Out of the chair."

For the moment, he obeys.


Please review, I am a review-junkie.
