Radio: star-crossed

We first heard the humming of the cosmic
microwave background when we hung
satellites in our ionosphere and recorded
by accident the conspirational whisper
of radiowave noise

–a love letter
from the faraway galaxies that we
exalted in our flickering screens, like
schoolchildren pledging romance–

that radiometric anomaly
is the sigh of a lover finally acknowledged
