Poem of the Week-Transitor

At 14 I transported from NY to Los Angeles

Father dead a year

Bancroft Jr High captured my indoctrination

Smashed the transistor radio to my ear for

Enlightening my hearing

The KHJ Top 30 pop

List chart accounting

Bridge of You Can’t Hurry Love

Gave me chills

Made me high

Supreme numbers stayed number 1

Frigate record store for my 45’s

Owner could be gay

Searching for that ultimate song

Using my .50 for maximum enjoyment

Music befriended me
