Bookstore Poem #433

I was not watching TV when I wrote this.

Looks like they’ve stumped the panel this round
the question wasn’t even a curveball—
nobody knew where to look

Oddly enough
nobody seems to be keeping score either
so now everybody’s arguing about who was ahead—
and by how much

The viewing audience has slipped out
to use their respective bathrooms
get snacks
or be anywhere else
having otherwise been lulled into complacency
by the extended stretch between explosive arguments

Low blood sugar trumps dull television
