National Poetry Month, Day 22

let’s remember for a moment
the token machines
the tickets
and the prizes

first the baseball card stores
went out of business
then the arcades
now finally
the rental stores

all the bands I grew up with
are putting out
20th anniversary
reissues
of classic albums

and I learn that nostaliga
only comes on
when nothing
interests me
about the present
