I laid some
vinyl
onto the vintage
turntable
– with spinning thoughts aboard my
old-fashioned mind –
then I
soared off toward
my imagination
dreaming
of escape

someplace distant,
someplace – wonderful –

but I continue
to return
longing to be
remembered as some
flawless melody –

where the crackle
of my appearance
sends him into
oblivion just like
the pop of a record
launches me
toward Nirvana
– it actually smells like teen spirit –

when the needle
stops dragging

my mind
loses its thought
and

fades to black
