1968 AM

1968 AM

 

He sits in the battery power’d

Hand thump’d car

Listenin’ to the station that connects

Venus to his antenna.

  

Every day at 5:30 pm

He’s punched the AM dial

Selecting a love song from the air.

 

’57 Chevy Impala, sky blue

And baby, too,

Listenin’ beyond the melodies

For cues from sonic rhapsodies

Both waitin’ for a hand to hold,

Both steerin’ left and right.

 

Tomorrow has always been

Waitin’ at their disposal,

But “all my lovin’ ” can’t wait a day

In the wake of AM’s proposal.

Right here in daddy’s car.

Right here in daddy’s car.
