televisioned (poem – v2)

sometimes i feel i’ve the depth of a screen
and the best it gets is a script with depth
or an actor who’s learnt what background means
something i wonder if i’ve done myself

mixed in a crowd on its narrative beams
passing me by with their shows in their eyes
our dialogues only mine the seams
of what things mean in our tv lives

One from just over a year ago. I’ve rewritten the last line today, and the last word of v2l1 what was i thinking moving so far from a rhyme pattern in verse 2 last year.

hah, my picture should be of a flat screen tv, it can be that deep.
