Day 17: Technology

Refurbished Sony Walkman TPS-L2 - Guardians of the Galaxy Cassette ...

Today's prompt was to write about piece of forgotten technology.


the joy of music on the go
even if it jumped with every footfall 

a yellow brick that thrummed
in hand, with every button click -

the unbridled bebop of a beat
ricocheting through each heartbeat

the sadness of spaghetti tangled tape
and low battery pain

the click and load of pressing 'play'
world melting away;

all my favourites taped to stay
in rewind re-runs and fast-forward fury

(the mixtape, that personal artefact
of one's emotions at any given date)

in sync with life then - awkward and clunky
but always a solid comfort
