From keyboards to cassettes (if you remember the 90’s) plastic has offered us endless opportunities to express ourselves. I have written about the destruction plastic has facilitated, but I’d like to remember the music too…
Tinny notes from sleek keys
Sounds from the electronic with a man made ear.
Plastic coated electricity to wend
Through notes, sounds and paperback tunes.
Vinyl courier of melody
A thing of beauty to cherish and collect.
Teen’s companion, mentor;
A soundtrack to life.
To mix and dub, to crush and pine
A cassette to edit just right.
Small pieces of soul encased in slimline plastic
Gift, a message, to give feelings voice.
Plastic was there.
An instrument, confidant and messenger.
