My life is not a video
To be rewound
And replayed
On demand
Not a collection
Of those things
that made me laugh
Or cry
Or rage
Not to be enjoyed
Fifteen
Commercial free
Minutes at a time

Even If you could
It would not be
What you see
There
On the screen
As you fast forward
To the good parts
Or go to the kitchen
For ice cream
When the story drags

To know me
Takes far more
Than viewing
From the safety
And comfort
Of your favorite chair
Life is messy
To know me
Requires that you get your hands dirty
From time to time

I do not come with a channel guide
There are no episodes
I do not respond to remotes
I am not a program

This has not been a recording
