how to fix a radio

your radio is your talking
world & your baby is your
world crawling into walls.

holding your radio
your baby heads for
the surface hardest to
the pasifika wall
who has only one coat.

there are marks to prove
how hard his throw is.

you say see this is the tip
of mexico jutting
that is the size of greece

the news of the world
which was on & going
& once with an aerial
where an aerial should be—

is now
your world down
your radio sellotaped
& arnica with your baby.
