STATIC

STATIC

The radio was playing
Broadcasting
And we were communicating
But I thought I could do better
So I tried to say more
From the frequency stationed in my mind
With an adjustment
I thought I could
get my voice
and message clearer
And so I moved the dial
Raised the antenna
And my tongue fumbled
Now there’s static
And garbled words
A multitude of voices
Struggling to say something
Nothing makes sense
And I’m sorry to have touched the dial
But I had to try
To tune in with you.
