RADIO GIRL

Oh radio
girl

I’m falling for
you deeply, the
love slide
steeper than
an
Apache tepee

my mind whirling
as if my head was
hovering above my
body like
a flying saucer

the sounds we
are making in the darkness
(our places of
binary opposition
demanding to be
taken
to each other’s
leader)
what a play that would be
if you guys could catch it

pull it
out the airwaves

so quaint, so squint,
so cockeyed this desire
(whose biggest, braggiest
connotation is love)

that when I tattooed your name
all over my body, the letters cursive
wrapping
around each other like snakes

I realized
that I had spelt you wrongly-spelt
name correctly thus
compounding the error

lucky you came
with oil and perfume
track changed me

gave me
in depth edit, the
whole caboodle

after which, naturally, time out mandatory
for a commercial break.
