most are black

some are larger

each side with four

or five

some are smaller

each side

one track.

 

Little by little they went away

with no one thinking

they would be back

such a loss of the art

of the cover so many

like a portrait or a

mural or a scene

all masterpieces so beautifully

designed on a cardboard

perfect square even

“The White Album” was a great

expression so minimal

so bare.

 

Then they wanted everything smaller

they wanted their music

more compact thinking that

in the new “digital age” to

more consumers a smaller

disc they could

attract.

 

Previously made covers were

re-printed but new art was

not being created the new cd

was too small for its cover to be

like a work fit for a museum wall

credits, notes, and song inspirations

were hardly written

or not present at all.

 

Now out the bins

of the background and

underground’s collectors

they have been recovered

they have been uncovered

they are popular again

they have been rediscovered.
