Season's Muzak

They started about a week ago.
Thanksgiving movies

Today, the day after Thanksgiving
They changed
Christmas movies now
Hallmark movies
I love them
Sugary sweet, predictable
and ending happily.

Jim squirms in his chair.
"isn't there something else to watch?"
Maybe so
but these are my seasonal drug
requited love, romance, sweetness
you know
nothing like real life

Its the background muzak
for cookie baking,
writing Christmas cards,
and wrapping packages.

Leave the channel alone
if you want that stuff done.
