Radio Thunder

There is an online radio
all digital, an interface from Enschede
so different, the waterfall display
from the radio dials in his office

From the other side of the world
I hear many voices through the noise
I hear music and the ticking of radar.
I switch to AM and hear thunder
from a station in Tennesse

For a moment I am able to imagine
sitting on the concrete floor
listening to static, punctuated with crackling
"Listen, that's thunder," he had said

I tune the station
and imagine what it would be like
to hear the echo of his voice whole,
through the static

Just one more time.
