The Voice in the Screen

Brian Schmitt


Please don’t change the channel.
Forget the blurry sight,
And don’t mind the black lines.
It’s not too foggy,
It’s actually quite clear,
You just need new glasses.
This is how it is.
You don’t know any better.
When you look closer,
Past the static and
Through the glass,
You can easily see
The world is not that bad,
And I mean you no harm.
Besides, you would find
That nothing else is on.
