Lockdown TV

TV is a history book.

I look at the past

Of strangers kissing

And I’m missing the hook

Of friends huddling for a snap

And the wrap of arms

Of families at weddings

Kids playing together

And festival dwellings

Watching TV is a relic

Watching TV is nostalgic

Binging until they broadcast

That we can go out in gardens

But go right past the gates

Peel the masks off our face

Inhale the scent of the hair

Of the one you embrace

Partake in the things

TV gave you a taste of

Remembering what it was like

To stay in and dream of.
