My dog is looking straight in my eyes
How are you today?
Still tired, still in bad shape?
You said the sun will resolve all of these
That we will take long walks in the park
We will visit our favourite gardens and trees
No, you don’t leave that damn armchair
That prison that you, yourself built around you
Every morning you make promises
Look the sun is up, we will take a long stroll today
Only the mouth is moving
I see, I can definitely see
The shroud of death coating your body
I practically smell it
Sure I pretend to be cheery
To ignore the elephant in the room
The elephant sinking in that armchair
I am talking about you here!
The elephant eating cakes in this room
It is you, lady!
I am going on the hallway now
to watch the roast in the oven
No point discussing further
You’ve already been swallowed by the TV screen
