Tin cup Tommy

What would you do on BBC4 or ITV2
could you be body shopping,
eyeball popping?

I should be a fantasy on
Radio3 while you
fantasize about Radio5
instead,
I’m an ideogram
a faint figure of a man.

As I sink into another submarine
I can dream of other things
and see what tomorrow brings.

I hear that the fat lady sings falsetto
I need to go
and listen.
