TV Withdrawal – A Poem

fleshy curiosity

toy numbed

luxury puppet

de-questioned

unbecomes

 

hungry fad

uncontrolled pad

sense plucker

watch sucker

distract

 

moral maker

truth faker

flat-faced

lie parade

masquerade

 

unplugged

panic jabber

stand still

over filled

stretch spill

 

detoxified

realise eyes

outreach HD

revisible company

final relief

    1. A note on my feelings
      1st stanza – felt a strong attraction
      2nd stanza – felt lusty desire
      3rd stanza – felt ashamed
      4th stanza – felt the DT’s kick in
      5th stanza – the blank screen reflects my empty watching

      1. I like the tenor of your emotions, they strike a chord with mine, how harmonious it is 😀
        (okay, but mildly disturbed by your lusty desire – lexicophillia anyone?!)

  1. I’m proud to tell of the last three times I watched broadcast TV.
    1. 9/11
    2. Obama’s acceptance speach
    3. The Londond Olympics (first ones since my mom died)

    and now with the internet I can watch any show I want and still maintain my smug-and-superior-pop-culture-disconnect attitude!
    Kind of like doing coke in the closet and saying “But I don’t do it at the clubs anymore….look at those people!”
    After all, sometimes I DO still want my opinion handed to me…

You can tell me anything (yes, even that!)
