the TV jumped down off the wall
and scrambled out the back on all fours
making pace for the tree line
and what was so funny about the whole thing
was that cartoons continued to play even after
the TV jumped down off the wall
so I went into the kitchen but the toaster too
was sick of me and so left dragging its cord
the way slugs along slime when they crawl
and soon after the whole house just
dragged itself across the yard and disappeared
over the hill & in towards town
and I stood in the empty lot with my hands
in my pockets
but soon even those
crawled right off my arms like fleshy pink spiders
and so I stood and watched the clouds
with the still standing water heater
who I knew would never leave me
