Gramophone.

The night is dark,
The white is blotted,
Scars from age,
But still a timeless classic.

Years of hypocrites,
And fashioned drama,
When talk was richer,
And soul much lighter.

The tang of brass in the air.
Blaring.
The shine and swing,
Of timeless threads.

Turn the vinyl,
Across the needle,
Beats humming out,
In grace.

Static and mused,
Veins running,
In the rhythm,
In the heart.

These are the romances,
The innuendos,
Of priceless stars,
Of timeless classics.
