Second Revolution

Record Spinning on Turn Table

(Play It Again AM)

– the record is not broken –

– though rift in operation –

– jumps along –

– every groove –

– its own peculiar nuance –

– deny –

– to disbelievers –

– it was ever –

– just a piece of plastic –

– he sang my song –

– self-effacing –

– to newer models –

– deemed superior –

– to me ’twas special –

– he played my dreams –

– in words and rhythm –

– found my soulful heart –

– the record is not broken –

– though he’s quiet –

– residing on some shelf –

– time turns the tables –

– i play his tunes –

– sadly –

– nowadays –

– i play them for myself –

It appears I cannot resist the rhyme even after the free.

  1. Thanks for sharing nostalgia with me. This makes me miss those jukeboxes that dropped a record down and for a quarter you could listen to it again. I still have my 45’s and the wooden RCA Victorola player. Apple line of Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel. . . I have the 45 of “Revolution.” Evoking memories may have not been your intent but this is how I took it. Thank you!
