Remember what it was like to flip through channels

And listen to an incomprehensible cacophony

Until stumbling upon something that caught your eye for more than two seconds

Before services like Netflix and Hulu made television programs immediately accessible

That is what it feels like inside my head most days

My body may be still but my mind rapidly rummages through stations

Differentiating fragments of information

Unable to decide what deserves my attention

Inspired by a quote from my coworker who also helped write and edit this piece.
