American Television

after careful deliberation
I decide not to appear before you
no, no, I’m not a hoax, nothing like that
I’m just camera-shy, you see, and
I honestly hate being filmed
hey, nobody is perfect, you know
it’s not my fault that I don’t exist
but here’s a fin, a shadow,
a contouring orange blob
on your sensor screen
to keep you on the couch
a little bit longer
