The way my mother takes of her glasses
to look at the screen
because she can’t see up close
even though she has bifocals
How my parents will watch a movie
With their phones in their lap
Makes me sad for the future
Because why can’t we just watch tv
Without a phone?
I am guilty too.
I watch television with my phone
In my lap
Just incase I get a snapchat.
I check Instagram
When I am bored of the show.
But I don’t dare turn the television off
Because then there will be silence.
And I hate silence.
