Faded

immortal brushstrokes

liven dull canvas

stretched at the corners

the scene a glimpse

of days gone by

in the distance

 

melody soars

through painted clouds

while harmony rolls

over rising and falling hills

life extended by a coda

until its travels

made public

become pop rock

 

novelty is an erratic dream

already discovered by

deceased geniuses

who

propped up like scarecrows

shamed that

we fill them

with straw

This poem is from 2011. Found it recently–I love finding old poems and stories! I really did not like pop music back then. It’s still not my favorite, but I think, rereading this, I really must have disliked it a great deal.
