There must be something

on a better station

broadcasting live between

reality and reruns.

There must be somes-

thetic reprogramming

between the rattle out

and the opening gurgle in.

There must be sometime

to pause mid arc on air

between the ambulance

and our unscheduled sponsor break.

There must be somewhere

the viewers flip between

the victim they despise

and ghosts they never believe.

There must be someway

to mute the nightly news

of loathing lethargy

between the bright squeaky snow.

There must be someone

between the fear and lust

that blacks out childhood

for the studio audience.
