Out of The Corner Of A Jaundiced Eye

Distracting myself in that god-awful gym
running on a treadmill and looking at the TV screen:
it's some food show on the Travel Channel
and I can't help noticing as they show
one family after another
happily eating and talking to the camera
that one of the moms is reaching to dip
some food item into another
while in mid-nod on opiates,
probably prescribed and abused.

Fat, bored, sick, addicted,
entertained unto oblivion
and rich enough to have time to
think about it.

What a pickle.
What a dream.
