At least my vinyl grandfathers are still listened to. I sang the best I could, but the quality of vinyl beats nothing except the futuristic computer files who mock all of us who sit in the sun, and collect dust, waiting for that one day where we are simply thrown out because of our uselessness.
Sitting there in the sunlight of which ruins me, I ponder and wonder about what I did to deserve this. I think about how nobody loves me anymore.
