Stubborn Television

January 30, 2008
Dark wood for your frame
Hiding within the tubes
Crank the metal knobs
Or hook up the VCR or Cable
Faded images on every channel
Time for another color adjustment
Best 24-inch screen back in the day
Decorations on your top

Hiding dust
Born in ‘85

You watched the Cold War end
And the towers tumble down
And shuttles falling like stars
Comfort us with our own home movies

Its like you were there
Fingerprints once covered your face
As you babysat us while mom cooked
But now you have overstayed your welcome
We keep you plugged in
Hoping maybe you’ll get struck by lightning
But you refuse to.

You always were stubborn.
