i'm never around a TV unless i'm being subjected to it
or i'm watching a movie...

i'm like an animal
i cannot NOT stare at it
my brain can't focus

i can't imagine what it's like for people who have it on all the time
never being able to complete a thought...

how can we talk?
how can we be present with eachother when there's the whole manic world spazing out for our attention right there?

and i feel we're right to be angry they're not paying enough attention to us
everything on the TV is transparently fake
it's insulting to have it on when i'm there
especially when someone says they love me and doesn't get to see me often
to choose to have that thing on


when i went up to live with Leo
i tried to fix a TV someone had given to him
simply because it was paired with a VCR
well, the VCR was broken
and that's all i wanted from it...
but when i tried to fix it i broke the whole thing..
Leo and i agreed
the TV was better broken:
we took it out to the trash heap.
