Aux

Aux

 

First, cords like brambles

crammed in the crevasse

between the wall and the

entertainment center.

 

Second, the wire brigade

with their plug diagnostics

and electrical metering,

mapping the genome of the

audio-visual interface.

 

Then, the ground crew techies

with their bundles and rolls

of electrical tape and

outlet covers, bristling

with manuals and warnings

for parents about children

—batteries not included.

 

All for the finale flip

of the switch, the

glorious gentle glow

of the stirring screen

alive.

 

Oh, the auxhilaration!
