National Poetry Writing Month: Day 13 – Radio

Circular speakers
Large like moons
Glowing in the night,
Silent shimmers by
Pillow case.

Like a warm mouth
In my ear
Verse and chorus
Ring and remain,
Just sitting there.

Static buzzes
And I imagine something
Interstellar.

Turning knobs
Skittering past numbers,
Favorites always ended in
Nines and fives.

New music flung itself
Across my mind,
Illuminating the backs
Of my eyes
And igniting a stream
Of stories untold,
The pronouns referred to
Characters I’d soon know
By heart.
