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.
