sitting with history – February 12

2.12.2016 [sitting with history]

sitting with history

all around in stacks

and microfiche

in displays that show

past times that are mine.


how can it be

that the everyday

of my life

is now the yesteryear

of theirs


on display to wonder

and point, perhaps

giggle or sigh,

at the oddities of

my days gone by.
