A case of "reverse" Ekphrasis, these lines from some poems I have already written created the image of "chairs" which is the given poetic gestalt. As a writing exercise, a "picture discovery" could objecify what may have been merely an abstract concept. In Chinese ideography, the single image is a conglomerate of all characters (ideographs) that might have "drawn" (pictured) the idea.
In the case of "Chairs," the woman on the chair --- who appears with what seems to this beholder a "lonely" repose --- would have been the "picture" conjured by all the words in the three excerpts, if it were vice versa. Picture first. Then reactions: words, images, structures, tropes, etcetera) But the picture came after the words, therefore, it was not the ekphrasis stimulus.
It could be a posterior "epiphany" or the issue of a "surprise (poetic) pregnancy" in the words of poet Jose Garcia Villa. It is the cart before the horse, as it were.
Now go figure what this is all about.
