Static (National Poetry Writing Month 2022 #21)   Leave a comment

There is a static in my eyes 
That only I can see
This technicolor tv buzz
Is only here for me

Sometimes I do not notice it
Sometimes I'm well aware
But even when I'm fast asleep
The static stays right there.

It's been with me for all my life,
It's with me to the end.
And even when I'm all alone
It's always been a friend.

I always thought its presence
Was the normal point of view.
But now I have a question:
Do you see the static too?
