There’s an old man playing Minecraft in the library
On a laptop probably half his age –
Considering technology ages faster than flesh,
The laptop is ancient.
There’s an old woman playing solitaire in the library.
She’s celebrating her wins quite loudly
But no one seems to mind
It would be cruel to tell an old woman to be quiet.
I’m attempting to be productive in the library
But really I am watching the old man
Build a castle out of wood and cobblestone bricks,
Pretending I live there.Return to issues
