A Time Capsule Is What I Found.
I name it after the experienced the sound
Of fifteen ears ago through ears that have not aged a day
sonically. How can this be? I only travelled through time
not into another body? My hands feel younger too
and my mind. Sonic youth I have named it. I feel optimism.
I feel hope. Love. It cannot end. It will not end. I will see to that.
Maybe the novelty will wear off. Maybe I will try another time zone.
but I can’t see why I should try. Snow. Snow.Snow.
I wasn’t even trying. How can that be a lie?
Anyway I have seen things, now I know and fill in gaps from the future.
I cannot last. My folly has already toppled me down. Around.Around.
Fallen.Falling.Death is not calling. How can I still be falling?
Weren’t the Nineties rough and tough? And the Noughties Nice?
And the Tens will be sexy and bright or shy and unseen depending on the time.
I am a snowflake and I am lost. Did I perhaps think that a vacuum would save me? It must have been a big thing in the Fifties. Vacuums. Suction machines. Dust removal apparatus.
wtf.Blow me. Knock me down with a feather will ya!
