I found this one when I was looking through my poems.  I don't even remember writing it.  It was written a couple of weeks ago at 11:59pm.

Spin Cycle

Broken record

round and round we go

same groove


it’s only me

round and round I go

Broken record

one trick pony The PoetBay support member heart!
This, with "Job Well Done," seems to go well together. They may be short, but they paint a large picture. More poems like these may make the picture less abstract, but there's nothing wrong with abstract. A lot is left to the reader's imagination, which I always think is a good thing.

The first lines are of "we," the last lines of "me." It may be a broken record, but between the first and last lines the music seems to have changed.

The symmetry of this is great, I mean the lines lengths and use of caps.

Though this and "Job Well Done" go well together, the humor of "Job Well Done" is gone. This is a serious poem. "Job Well Done" belies the same seriousness, it's there, but in a deeper layer.

I take it its a Long Player (Age related term)

As close to a thought in print as I have seen.
