Borderline

I have company,
the ticking clock and tinnitus,
thoughts are a nuisance,
shoot the TV with the remote
defiant it moves and mouthes
its flicky pictures
uninteresting
and I the uninterested
watch hands move,
slowly,
tiredness is stalling
real life,
there is fidgeting,
I focus
wanting music
not movement,
effort required
and utilised,
head on hand
darkness in eyes,
freedom jumps in,
my dreams.

"A watched pot never boils," and the hands of a watched clock scarcely move. What an effective evocation of serious boredom!

Yah, I want music and the good stuff from TV, but
it's not there anymore. That's why I dumped cable.
You shoot the TV with the remote. I'd like to shoot
it with something else.
