Late last year the Spinoff Review of Books invited Colin Craig to submit some of his poetry. He sent three works; we posted One World in November, and today publish his poem titled TV.
Square box, square message, square minds, main stream conformity,
Buy me, have me, consume me, spend with great enormity.
Change me, record me, titillate your fantasy
Wake with me, sleep with me, plan your day about me
Bow down to your oracle, let me be the world you see,
When it comes to giving references, you saw it on TV.
