Signs Of Greater Age (43)

1-seeing cultures and artifacts
that you once prized as distinctive,
particularly technologies that seemed to last,
not just lose all their market cashe,
but then become fit only for dressing the windows
of trendy retro/pseudo charity shops
of the type that last one summer and close.

2-Losing patience with the news,
beyond the headlines. Every story
seems to be a retread of past events
which in the more analytical media
you trust more they are always discovering
that the same thing happened before
-going right back to the earliest times
that there is still evidence for.
