Post Punk Echoes

My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Music Prompt #36 “Atmosphere” by Joy Division

The beginning of the eighties

A student in Cologne

Listened to John Peel

Every week on BFBS

Heard that imperfect maroon voice

Exposing his soul

Filling a hole

In her life

She bought the single

Played it again and again

Filled with anger and pain

After all those years

Your ghostly voice echoes

Hello Ian

Nothing’s changed
