Head TV

Tuning in.  Head TV is airing and blaring 100 different programs again, simultaneously on the tv screen.  I try to watch intently a miasma of commercial messages, melodramas, documentaries, thrillers, comedies, sci fi.  My eyes dart from one to the other and back again.  Sound bites blaring.  Colors colliding.  Ear and eye madness.  I desperately try to focus on one channel looking for inspiration, but it’s deafening; impossible.  Reruns!  Exasperated.  I want to turn it off but there’s no “off” button.  This mind TV can’t be unplugged!  I wheel the thing into the other room and close the door, ignoring it.  Peace at last.  I’ll watch it later.  Maybe.
