Don’t have time for a post now, here’s a poem about vinyl!
Remaining with the theme of the previous post….
Lately I’ve been
Listening to old records,
Lovingly encased in plastic,
Stored away in dusty places
I never thought I’d visit again…

Girls and worlds, to be touched again
It’s funny how a chord or
A melody that lingers
Brings you back in time
Effortlessly. Moon River.

I didn’t even know I liked
Can make me cry
Even when they skip
Nostalgia fades away
But I still can’t understand
The boy who was standing
In the mirror so many years ago
