Radios

I remember waiting hours in my mama's Vega
Just to hear that one Thomas Dolby hit
Now it’s hard to wait for buffering
Will I get the right torrents?!
To stream together all the Maroon 5 shit?!?!
Gone are the days of hearing something amazing
On mom’s radio
Or painting my old house after it became a preschool
For punishment at fifteen for wrecking a car
I listened on repeat to a tape of Physical Graffiti
Catching smoke breaks with my friend T Mabry
But gone are the days of hearing something amazing
On my sister’s radio
Hand job and Clapton Cocaine
Still Of The Night and Tawny Kitaen 
Well I guess it’s no one’s fault
R.E.M. Catapult
Or the first time I heard Hot Legs
Got a tingle in my Toughskins
Right around the ripe old age of six
Or riding with my daddy listening to Merle Haggard
Shopping For Dresses / Going Where The Lonely Go
But gone are the days of hearing something amazing
On my diddy’s radio
