That timeless tune



Yet it fits an older time



Do you recognize it?



And does it take you back



Back in time



This mental time travel



To a place you've never been



Only imagined-From before you were born



What does it say?



What does it touch?



 



Feel the extension



The long stretch



Thinner and thinner



Clay, putty, plastic, metal



It doesn't really matter



It doesn't really show



And that's okay



 



Just a façade or is this



The real the new



The way it's meant



And what did you lose?



Do you even care?



I do.



 



Was it worth it?



Bet it wasn't



 



Feeling the smooth soft



Feel everything



Is this right yet?



Have I plunged in yet again



"And what would you recommend?"



Can you?



Or is everything important



Pages full of bright yellow



Not of pink or blue or orange or green



That's okay too



But where is the importance?



Dog ears, and kitty whiskers?



 



Meaning, simple meaning



Can you trace it back



Does the origin even matter?



Of course. - But why?



And is the integral still the same



Forward or backwards?



What about the derivation. I don't know



"And that's not okay" - why?



 



When will you be taken back



When will it show what you lack



Will you travel to a place you've never been



Where the rules are different



To a time that never was-



A time and place you could never be



And will you even notice then?



Will you even care then?



I don't know



I don't know



And that's not okay



But it has to be…
