Passivity

In front of the TV

I watch pictures I don’t see

As words flow by

Unheard

Imparting no message.

I’m always here.

It’s always on.

No longer entertainment,

Its purpose is to mask the fact

That I’m alone.

Every now and then,

I see something.

I hear a word or two.

I ask myself, “what have I missed?”

And I wonder why I never pay attention.

The question drives me back into conjecture,

And I return to the words and pictures inside my head.
