Not before the cat

Nine years and five days ago

a glorious gift from two great parents

brought digital music to my world

with an ipod- best ever birthday present.


A true marvel of the modern day.

More sounds than I thought I’d have ever.

Portable, versatile, user friendly,

robust and sturdy- could last forever!


I love using playlists, for tasks and moods,

creating and shaping them from day one,

for playing darts or preparing food,

focused for writing or dancing for fun.


The ipod is my most valued possession,

in crisis the first to which I would go,

if in the house a fire was raging,

after I’d thrown the cat out the window.
