MayPoWriMo 20

Ennui of middle age 
lost to mid twenties me
as music playing
after waking from a nap
having missed half the album
only to catch the triumphant
chorus in the extended coda
ready to drop the needle
back at the start
for another go around
now that twenty years
or so have passed by
lugubrious passages
leaving a sort of sense
as the start of something fresh
in the wanderlust aftermath
I wanted to make it all okay
