WORKING AT THE MUSEUM (14-March-2013)

Volunteering for the community

Has me working on records cemetery

Transcribing headstones’ last message

For technology’s online passage

And in my breaks I roam around

The rooms of a post office re-homed

With dental chair and printing press

A baby’s cot, lace wedding dress…

all memories of the past that once

was a day like today, now evidence

of time’s traversing ever along

the daily things we think common

one day will grace an exhibit unique

When they think our lives are so antique

so words I write and dates transform

for some future researcher… yet to be born.
