Poem: "Tune into the Radio" by James Kenneth Blaylock

Tune into the Radio
James Kenneth Blaylock, 4-23-21

I would tune into the radio, but most everything is digital these, nowadays

the days of NES, Little Debbies and Faygo have all gone the way of the dinosaurs...

although all are still around today, timing
has rolled on like a turning stone, burning

of course Greta sounds like Zepplin,
I’m just fine with those comparisons

yet, no one mimics Nirvana, at least
successfully, overproduced monotony

anonymously, I wish that iTunes and
Spotify and the like didn’t govern...

the tunnels won’t hide pop culture,
this war somehow keeps flipping

down the dial to handheld devices,
good thing my battery is charged

every frequency and ceremony
and history creeps by too quickly

R.E.M. said Everybody Hurts
perpetually and continuously

obviously the years tear us down -
our defenses, hit record on the VCR
