One Should Appreciate the Poetry in the Poem

So you decide to watch TV and you watch Posh Spice.
That's good really.
Nothing to complain about.
So the world isn't terrific. It's terrific.

Even while animated children jump around in the advertisement, the splashes they
make don't last.
Even in poetry. Or especially.
Oh god, I'm sorry to have said that.

When I finally find the words to say what I'm saying, I'll stop.
I don't mean at the end of this poem.
When the wheel stops it will stop. I want to say "baby."
