Gene DeMaegd’s “Radio Head” after Brian Lackey


Gene DeMaegd evolved from an Art of Poetry supporter to a participant when this collage by Brian Lackey inspired him to put pen to paper. Stop by Hickory Museum of Art and see what moves you! Photo courtesy of Gin Hurley, taken at the June 17, 2017 Art of Poetry event.

Gene DeMaegd
After “Past Lives” by Brian Lackey

cruising the back roads of Indiana
in a sweet ’66 Chevy van
wearing my black bandana
hoping not to run into the man
slamming in a cassette,
feeling no regret,
cranking up the volume,
only to hear a grinding sound
radio’s eating up the tape

I thought I was listening to Magic Bus,
but, to my dismay, I hear
Another One Bites The Dust
