Infatuated by ALL things compact

Decades ago
a new vessel to hold music
a tiny compact disk
a single
similar to a record single
as a CD and shrunken
to only play a single

It was Simply Red’s
If You Don’t Know Me By Now
literally fit in the palm
of my small seventeen
year old hand

Ridiculous hopeless romantic
that song showed me
the truth in how to let go
of human beings

Time is humanity’s

It does require effort & longevity
with beyond a handful
of patience
with cataclysmic aha moments
Earth shattering even
worth is interchangeable
to those in society

we hold in ourself to the point
in hurts, and release
to comprehend truth of character
will be in question
