Deep cuts

More on melancholy:

Listening to music,

tonight,

that was seminal

in my twenties.

The words

echoed back through memory,

trying to reinforce

the mood of those times;

they failed.

Time

and experience

have rendered me numb

to these prior aspects.

I’m not sure

that I can be reached,

not by music, anyway…

…anyway.

These albums I listened to

on loop

are all like old photos

of people I once knew:

I recall the moments,

But not why they mattered.
