208

radio Luxembourg on a rising

falling wave

playing the best music

late at night

Sundays the top twenty

my transistor under the blankets

killing the batteries

hoping the oldies couldn’t hear

falling asleep to the beat

waking on Monday for school

to talk about the songs

the sounds we’d heard

then radio free Europe

broadcasting to American troops

stationed in germany

we’d pick up on music

not yet played on our radio

& new diseases to look out for
