A poem written like a person is changing radio stations... Good idea? I don't know. I have been awake for 41 hours.

~sssshhhtttssssskkkkkchchchssssssss~

If you remember
Correctly, this is
All my fault. I
Welcomed the
Advance and
Lusted for the
Chance. If you
Remember correctly,
This is all my fault.
I told you one of
These days and
Guilted out when
Things got sideways--

In a cabin on a hill in Butcher--

~sssshhhtttssssskkkkkchchchssssssss~

When your hand is open
To give it is open to
Receive. Next caller please.
Doctor Dora, my boyfriend
Isn't in love with me, never
Was and what's more! says
He'll never be! He has her
On speed dial number--

~sssshhhtttssssskkkkkchchchssssssss~

It's been so long
            so long
Since I've felt anything
           oooo yeah boy
When I saw your face
           your sexy face
I knew it was--

~sssshhhtttssssskkkkkchchchssssssss~

And ones you want to forget !

From my f*****g chest

Best vest--

          --and then two weeks
Later she ran off with my best friend

Come on, come on
That girl was going faster!
Forget her, Lose her
That girl, you could've asked her!

Her twitter account says
She wound up down in Phoenix
I RT'd her schedule to the precinct!

Come on, come on
That girl was going nowhere!
Forget her, Lose her
That girl--

Big fan. If I place it right, its a transition through the frame work of some random things, stations as it were, yet in a thematic tradition they fit, as long as one has a monamatic idea in place to begin with. And I think the first station says it all--love lost. But the transitions fit like a movement in grief. And I don't think it resolves, and by that I mean it dosen't accept--the over and done with way. A scar is what is left. But hey...it's not the whole radio.

I found this to be so creative... it seems in new age technology that radio has lost some of its appeal but you piece did take me back to those days of flipping the dial. I throughly enjoyed this.
