Getting a TV with my First Husband

Now we have a television and I want to say to him, marry it.  Marry it, hire a maid and let me be la otra. Call me on the weekend to go dancing.
He believes it all: Hercules, Dr. Quinn and the novelas tras novelas.

Nobody on tv watches tv, do you see?
Their lives are more real than our own.


Lily Pads

if i stop talking
long enough
i will know what
to say
the stories
will find their way
up through the silence
i will find them
like lily pads
