Relative Something

*this* John W. Hays' take on things and experiences

it was a dvd
mailed from Netflix
the old-fashioned way
a typical limited series gritty crime drama
deliriously slow character introductions
with more detail about unimportant activity
people unconsciously do
than any person would like to admit
then I tried to get on with my night
where each silly habit
became my personal behavior scenes
inane to the extreme
I couldn’t stop
folding the bag over
three times –no, four
to seal in freshness
preparing for tomorrow
the next gritty drama
that lay ahead
a show I’d rather not watch
except that it’s me
