Nocturne Megahertz

The Poetry Channel when open,

its wavelength sharp and clear

Searching for me as it calls for my voice,

in moments dark but dear

 

The Poetry Channel if distant, remote,

streaming above my thoughts

Transmitting in silence, antenna to blame,

whose frequency I’ve sought

 

The Poetry Channel with static tuned out,

 its bandwidth framed in gold

Quiet by day, amplifying at night

—to broadcast time untold
