If this track were an object

I wrote this to lampoon the old concept of the music recorded as a physical thing.

Imagine your music
in a second hand store
with a name on the window
and a bell on the door

Imagine your best work
your cannes-winning film score
for sale with the crockery
on a white elephant stall

All dusty and broken
and mixed up with junk
in the wrong LP sleeve
down the yard in a trunk

Yes, Maam, It is re-
produced but not old
hand made by
craftsmen I’m told
Nice to look at and
and lovely to hold
but if it is broken
consider it sold
