Bending Rabbit Ears

April 7, 2004


Cadillac earrings dangle from pretentious ears. Late night talk shows run overly anxious parodies where the latest talk of the town, no matter who or what, is exposed in a humorous light.

Tonight I am on to you and feeling the full effects of five days. TV eyes welcome Norm into my room twice a night, back to back, but I am still not mindless, I have yet to accomplish my goal. A refill has calmed my nerves, but I’m already guilty of over-indulgence, and to be honest, I don’t want to become numb to you. Sleep is closing in, but I don’t want sleep, I just need it. Need to be rested. Need to be alert and ready for a long day, busy with you nestled in the back of my mind.

Just a state or two away, where I’ve been through and then back again, remains the remains of my eternal itch, abandoned and forgotten by the side of the road.
