Untuned Radio (52 hertz)

Fucking hell, what is that noise?

Waves of unwanted interference

fading in and out again,

your absence is more of a presence.


Breathe deep, shake my woeful head

attempting to retune my brain

to eliminate buzzing static,

transmitting me to join the insane.


Am I crazy? Or are you thinking of me?


In the crazy way - we used to be?

new frequency
old airwaves
crazy - - yes
to think
buzzing will
go away.

Yay - we have lift off!

I like the use of waves to communicate the aching feeling of loss - also the fuzz of communication - and the possibility that someone else's thoughts could be a part of all that.

It's an interesting thought - may be we aren't as alone as we think we are, when we're feeling lost.
