Poetry Train: So It Has Come To This

So, It Has Come to This

The two of us
sitting in our La-Z-Boys
eating supper
on TV trays
watching the channel 13
“Live at Five” news

Two bubbles
of tiredness
and boredom
floating through our days
occasionally bumping
into each other
but mostly resting
in the curve
of those soft chairs
as evening
fills our lives.

This to me sounds like a lapse into getting older! Routine is secure! Change is threatening and undesirable! A little sad in some ways, but for some that state of peace is very inviting. Great write!
