The Black Dot

There is nothing behind the t.v.
except wires that shackle me
to the world inside, where

shit projects onto my retinas,
producing impulses that bounce
from the optic nerve to my brain, so

I take the road most travelled –
search for the funny or
watch documentaries about

people whose deaths
are more interesting
than my life.
