Radio Notes

Radio Notes

Maybe if you made your masculinity try whispering
or yelping
while you sang over it

Or just took the cleaver out of your voice’s hands

If the song wants to be a parking lot let it be a parking lot
or pond or lake

In the vulnerable part of the song if you need
something to lean on sing in unison with the piano

Hold in your mind the day after
the day you were broken


  1. oh, Hannah, i so much enjoy this. without radio notes or music in general i could not exist.

    this is wonderfully simple yet so touching


  2. Lovely, Hannah. I especially like the concluding couplet.
