Radio doesn't close down anymore.
No one says Goodnight and means it.
But when they did in the days
when stations also slept
how profound was the instant after,
the silence that wasn't silence,
the hiss before the last sound died
opening a door to deeper-still audio dark

from Close Down

Sean Street has worked in radio for over thirty years and is now a Professor of Radio. The opening sequence of this collection - Radio, Ten Poems About Sound - was commissioned by the BBC for National Poetry Day. But here are many other topics — art, history and travel - as well as a magical series of poems about the Green Man.
