In defense of TV

We stayed up half the night
watching shows on Netflix

enjoying how close we have to sit
to watch anything on his laptop

indulging the thrill
of putting off our work

resting the parts of our brains
that worry

they say TV rots you
but so does fear
and there is healing in these moments
dropping like heart beats
a quiet balm
in trusting that nothing bad will happen
to two people
so idle and plain.
