What's Your Frequency? (2015)

What's Your Frequency? (2015)

A Poem by Wesley Dingler

(Auburn, Alabama)


True enough,

  My antenna shows some age,

But now it's aiming right at you.

  And the future may call for rain,

But right now, it's a clear view.

As hard as I've been broadcasting,

  You should be receiving me now.

I'm only gonna tell you once to stop acting,

  And for once, at least, hear me out.

  So, what's your frequency, Anna?

  Is it within range?

  Will it reach me from here to Savannah?

  If not, will it ever change? ...

          I don't think so.

Once again,

  You are tuning me out,

And it's starting to make me mad;

  Especially after all the talk about

How I am the best you've ever had.

If this is how you treat the best,

  I'd hate to see how you treated the worst.

I am left with only the guess

  The poor guy must have needed a hearse.

  So, set your frequency, Anna.

  Now it's within range.

  It may reach you from here to Havana.

  If not, will you ever change? ...

          I really hope so.

Honest words that are as sharp as a knife...not over the top angry or melodramatic.
