Great Little Idea

radio

When you think about it the
great little idea was a dud
spent an hour making fiddly
arrangements – you could
say delicately threading a
power cord for the portable
radio through a study wall
suggests ingenuity but in the
event made no difference

static still invades ABC

defending complex relocation
as overtly rational cries insanity;
one can propose it runs off
batteries therefore is infinitely
relocatable – if said batteries
are in it, have been recharged
recently or are in contiguously
strange places pending
rediscovery

yet again, supposed roots in
commonsense invade what
is both everyday and benign
territory – I freely admit the
idea arose because of Plasma
TV! It is complicated, I agree
but I did succeed in reducing
interference on said radio by
moving it around the room a
little bit in the first place...
