Time Travel

When I was growing up in the 1980s
I thought of the 1960s as “old-fashioned”
and kind of alien
an era of people in funny clothes
smoking lots of cigarettes
and singing golden oldies
as they watched their black-and-white three-channel television sets
and bought comics for five cents an issue
and said things like “gee” and “golly”

Now it’s 2016
and kids today
think of the 1990s
the way I thought of the 1960s
in the 1980s

I think I need to go off
and be sad now
