another damn poem

Poetry is difficult with the TV
blaring sitcom repeats
advertising creeping into my thoughts,
halting the flow of creativity, create tv---
See what I mean?
The best part of waking up is not Folgers in my cup
and I don't need to go Krogering.
If I kill this screaming box with the universal remote
the silence will be unbearable
and if I kill this silence with the universal remote
the screaming box will be unbearable.

Truth in poetry: I actually can't figure out how to use a "universal remote" ....the remote control for my tv is a simple on/off doo hickey

it's nice to see you around the blogosphere again. i've missed you.

i don't think i could use a universal remote either. i can barely make the dvd remote work.
