You are an Era
You are an Era

You are an era
And I am a tourist, reading
A history book about you.
I went through the several phases —
Old school rock,
60’s jazz and retro
The wars that made you.
Worn out, ripped jeans
Peace signs.
The extinction of polar bears,
The invention of sliced bread
I cut my finger on the edge of your last decade
I long to stay behind.
