a lasting impression

2 Aug

an old scratchy vinyl record

a thick one that crackles when the needle

meets the groove

that’s me

i made an impression sharp and deep

but now you can hear the music fading

being overcome by the pops and skips

eventually i will lose my signal

eventually i will be noise

but i prefer to think of myself this way

as a vacuum tube which took time to

do it’s thing

but when it did

it was warm and the power it gave

ran deep into your bones

all the fancy crap of today leaves no impression

i prefer to think of myself as a valued antique

never to be seen nor heard again
