Beatles Bathtub
by Bradley Mason Hamlin

a pretty
blonde American girl
of English heritage
bought me Beatles
Live @ BBC 2

so,
listening now
in the tub
with
mi amigo, Mr. Bubble

the tiny
portable stereo
shakes
if George
turns up the treble
or maybe
the trouble

as the cool bird
delivers
a pint of Sierra Nevada

she,
sometimes
gives me too much treble
as well

but
George’s guitar
sounds great
in the acoustics
of the bathroom …

you should try it

the beer is good
and cold in summer
the blonde is good
(even when bad)
and hot in summer

and I love her.

  1. Bradley Mason Hamlin’s projection of his sublime alter ego suggests the rock sounds of his Beatles plays well in this cerebral finely drawn poem of love’s imagery.Congratulations!
