Poem A Day Challenge Day 3 - The Problem With __________

The Problem With My Remote


too many buttons
DVR, INFO, LIVE
SETTINGS, HD
ZOOM, FAST FWD
AUX and REW

when I grab the thing
point and shoot…

the PAUSE button
doesn’t stop the cat
on her trek
through the milk spilled
on the dining room table

the RECORD button
doesn’t capture the teenager
sipping orange juice
straight from the carton

the GUIDE button
doesn’t help us decide
which restaurant we want
to choose for dinner

the ON DEMAND button
doesn’t pop the popcorn
and make an icy soft drink
suddenly appear

and no matter how many times
I push the MUTE button
the spouse keeps chattering away

the problem with my
remote control
is it only works
on the television
that is, as long as it
isn’t lost in the cushions
