Static Trickle

The car radio drizzles out some slow music. The reception's not great around here, too many high rise and deep lows. Luckily I know this tune so I fill in some dead air. Back home I found the song on YouTube. Turns out I got the lyrics wrong and the band's name. Words tend to drop down a list of forgotten things that's getting longer every day. To compensate I whistle a deaf tune only my humming brain can hear.
