Le petit cahier rouge de Montréal - In Atlanta

But I’ve seen Dr. King’s
Transistor Radio
I took a picture of it for my dad
I’m not sure whether he’ll be impressed about
It being Dr. King’s
But he’ll sure like to see an old transistor radio.

He used to have one
My dad, that is
It’s likely he’s seen many
But not one like that
Not in Brazil
That’s an RCA

He’d only see one of those in the movies
Or newsreels
Maybe one about the recent
Marches for civil rights
In the U.S.
Maybe that very same one.

Seeing that gadget on display
I’m not sure I’m impressed about
It being Dr. King’s either.
I just like the fact that it somehow
Connects me to my father
As I’m in Atlanta
