TV, can you see me?
You’re always holding court
telling stories,
when will you sit and listen?

Sometimes you’re a laugh,
but you can be a little horror.
More often than not
you’re full of drama.

When things get dark I watch my flat in you,
the main character perpetually deciding
whether or not to finish the share bag.
