Archie’s patience with reality tv
worn thin
thinner than ancient, ass-stretched upholstery
gave up on it all
hoisting and heavy breath’d
he rose
jumpstarting atrophic muscles
with the realization of years wasted
(and with no gun in sight to ‘Elvis’ that damned thing)
he bearhug carried it to the curb
blue storm cussing himself with every slipper’d step
he returned for it’s partner
“D’ey work as a team, d’ese two!”
Eyes stung by the sun he walked
slipper footed
towards nowhere in particular
stopping from time to time to admire cracks in the sidewalk and wondered where all the commentary was

    Freaking hell man, this is so good! Congrats on the features. About six months ago there was an old tv outside my friend’s house and someone had spray painted ‘reality’ on it :)

  • I wish I could say that was me.
    thanks parmi.

    That TV is awesome, so is the chair. I wouldnt have just taken a photo, I wouldve chucked the lot in the back of the ute. Nice shot

    A ute is a ummmmmmmmm like a pick-up I think you call them…a truck with no cab. Short for …wait for it……UTILITY. I just made that up but I think thats right

  • ah yes the ‘utility vehicle’. i understand. over here we put an ‘s’ in front of it and call it an Suv. a sport utility vehicle. i still like the animal i imagined more.
