122. The Twilight Zone.

let me lead you to the gallows
beckons the blank stare of the TV screen
looking back at me
in those dead dark hours
after even the TV men have gone home to someone’s bed
& there is just fuzz & noise where
once we had CNN & Tom & Jerry,
and you know what ?
you know that white noise –
that fuzz on your TV –
you know what that noise actually is ?
No, it’s not just noise,
it’s the first noise
the first noise ever made
it’s the leftovers from the big one,
the big bang –
billions of years old & now appearing live
in your living room
at this very minute
– a bit like Jerry Springer,
only more entertaining.
