Sing like the Colossi at Memnon until Julia comes up for air. Eastern radio holds my attention, the melodies tuned to prayer. Reception reports, colliding ocean waves, a deaf singer at 52. Outdated Russian sisters, unclaimed signals, tell me, what do I hear? Hail the foreign rhapsody, dark lantern's finest fruit. Birds of a feather in primitive form fly by in unseen traffic. The third worst poetry I know I should fear, unwelcome nocturne flare is the season of the year. Shockwave engage, shortwave enrage. Like a chant the words come out their lips: poetry for the wicked. The caster is no more, you stole the voices of women and children, now fall repentant.
