Noun that I've been watching (96)


91.5 fits through the pores of the two-pound
instrument jostling its referendum
on planned artistry.

Noun that I've been watching (94)

and I am hearing

playing jazz in the next room.

no matter what you say,
I hear your AM signal
transfer through
shared midnight.
