Couple Watching

There is a dusty road next to a desolate field.
In the middle of the field, a middle aged couple sits on a large sofa and watches TV.
They are very happy. They wave at passersby. They wave at me
and ask me to come over. I look at them from the distance.
They have created a gentle, simple world around themselves, around
the sofa, around the TV. From their post, higher than anything
else around them, they can see everything.
But mostly, they watch the TV.
