water-2313378__340

I am old enough to remember when

Toilets didn’t flush themselves

And soap dispensers didn’t

Self-ration pea-sized dollops.

And I could do errands in peace

Without

An interrupting phone call.

 

I am old enough to recall

Shelves stacked with pop

Like Fresca

But no bottled water

(Who would pay for water?)

 

We had to wait for the mail

From pen pals

And when the letters came

All their doings

Were already done.

But it was fun to get

Real letters,

Anyway.
