Hung over or something like it,
one picks up the remote to find

the pixels look different this time
but make up a familiar picture.

Everybody wants to drive the truck
even if the wheel turns
but a few degrees, the brakes are soft
and the hood is pointed at a cliff.

Click! makes way for
water and aspirin, then
salt and grease.

Chimichanga . . .
