today i saw the third dimension
for the first time
i didn't know i hadn't see it before
the doctor slapped a contact on my left cornea
and told me to walk around
i found depth
i didn't expect it went that deep
it was thirty-seven minutes
making twenty-years my t.v. show
and then it made me nauseous
and the doctor said my brain was spinning
in the long edges of new info
but I had to peel it, pop it off
and go back
to t.v.
like when there's a commercial break  and you get up for a snack
and look deep deep into the fridge
but can't bring bring anything back with you
