A poem from Stacy Post

Early Dreams of Telepathy
by Stacy Post

When you were eight-track
I was vinyl

When I was CD
you were cassette

strung out on a mixed tape
I couldn’t live without

but now
we’re both MP3

you say we can share a cloud
instead of direct downloads—

out-formatting me once again
It doesn’t matter really

how we share
the music

the songs of our connection
will outlast us, will synchronize

in the ethereal
our early dreams of telepathy

will come true
