i hate the TV @ 10:21 am

what a crude addictive beast
simple shows
moving around stereotypes over achetypes

laugh tracks
horror tracks

"News" and "exposés" fostering paranoia and distrust
... an over-all hopelessness
or pathetic patriotism
-- schizophrenic

it doesn't even matter the content

but parents near death's door
cannot spend a night NOT staring at the blaring box
even when their son
who they rarely see once a year
comes to visit

their son
and a friend, even
the TV must be on at all times

it's a sad as watching a junkie with a yen
or
more common
the coffee fiends who drink the shrillest schwill to quiet their need
making their breath and pores stink of addiction
worst worst
the pre-packaged death sticks
of some brand or another
people burning badly
exhaust
skin oozing nicotiene and tar
mouth tasting like death

what used to look "intelligent" and "interesting" to me
now looks like a desperate fix

-- And i come to visit my parents
i'm only going to be here two nights
and first thing back from dinner
they're setting up to watch TV

right
fuck it
i'm going up to bed

this shit makes me sick.
