the record player starts to spin

Posted on Updated on

the record player starts to spin

as it picks up speed it resembles

the tires on the old, red mustang

with the white rag top

that drives past the house each day

 

its arm moves slowly

across the wood finish

dropping down in just the right

place

 

the familiar scratching

of the needle as that first track

begins to play

is as comforting as

the smooth groove of

Coltrane’s saxophone

itself

      Thanks, that makes me happy! I bought a record player over the summer and I absolutely love it. I left it home and was thinking about how much I wanted to listen to it!
