Some poems from last summer.


"BUSES"

At night,
city buses are mobile boxes of light:
no mystery and no
talking to the driver
while school buses are rolling caverns
where field trip intrigue ferments
and middle school promises are broken
against sweaty vinyl
and Fellowship Camp t-shirts
welcome foreign hands
between them and the burgeoning
flesh they’re meant to cover.

Mood lighting: the procession
of orange highway lamps.

Serenade: the whalesong
of bus brakes.

Your dad is waiting in the car at your school.

He will ask you how was Six Flags.




"CALENDAR"

Years were longer than this,
right?

When I was ten
and you were
however old you were then?

Summers were around six months long
and Christmas never came:

remember that?




"THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS STATIC"

Static is not a naturally occurring phenomenon.
The rotations of the planets
and emanations of other, farther-away heavenly bodies
make noises eighty times as beautiful
(really, exactly eighty times,
there have been studies)
as any music you can conceive of
and the first radios picked them up.

But it was swiftly decided that
the gaps in between AM and FM stations
could not be filled with this
celestial symphony.

Who would ever turn their radios off?
That’s not energy efficient.
Who would listen to the traffic report
or Mickey and the Moondog’s Morning Maditude?
If no one’s listening no one advertises.
And who would ever get anything done?

So they made a recording of a wind
blowing through a barren autumn tree
pressed it to vinyl and played it through an old Victrola
slowed it down
and they had it:
Gray noise.

In a little bunker deep underground
the tape labeled “static” plays, on a creaky loop
into an old microphone
that runs to the world’s biggest antennae,
stretching up
to a super-terrestrial metal point
about as tall as the Iowa cornstalks
which surround it.

It floods the spaces between the notches on your radio dial
and keeps the galaxies from singing to you.
