Fluster

Fluster (Elvis First Appears of Ed Sullivan 1956) 9/9

Easy to forget how simple it was
this small black and white box
glowing in the corner of the room

Not everyone could afford one

And then this man with pitch black
hair and guitar looping around his body
like a moon in orbit

The tide coming from that box –

How many eyes were fixed?
Were averted?
How many minds changed completely?
