The television sat
entangled in the
wet summer grass
discarded and left for
anyone to take.
An ignominious end for
the most watched thing in that house for years.
How many images must have flickered across the screen?
Things seen that cannot be unseen.
Now left on the curb
kicked to the curb.
How quickly objects lose their meaning
and become "trash."
People are treated like this too.
We don't like to talk about it.
But it happens.
We will all be that television eventually.
