My collective t.v. unconscious by Melanie Browne

My collective t.v. unconscious
by Melanie Browne

My collective tv unconscious
Lies behind tin foil wrapped
ping pong ball Dog ears
Sexual tension between
Mary-anne and the professor
The crust from
Ann Romano's

My collective t.v. unconscious
Is giving birth by itself in a field
With a whiskey soaked rag
Gripped between its teeth
To relieve its pain.

It is Laura Ingalls
Adopted brother Albert
foaming at the
Mr. peppermint's hat
And Mr. snuffalufagus
Back when it was ok to believe he was really invisible

It's a Jim Morrison snake dance
And the three stooges last ride

My collective t.v. unconscious
Is an unbeatable bargain
if you call right now
