There was a moment sitting in front of 
the TV with ninety five percent of
the planet also watching the same thing
it seemed mass communication would solve
all the world’s problems bring us together
solve hunger by throwing money at it
the problem was we kept inventing more
ways of massively communicating
some did not think hunger was a problem
now I regard screens reasonably sure
ninety five percent of the other screens
could not even tune into this channel
the one that nostalgia plays on repeat
tiny fragments stay alone incomplete
