Poem by: Henry Mworia (Veteran)
The poem is about a tape. Video tapes have lost importance with time but still carry most of our childhood memories, some bear movies we enjoyed back in the days while others have songs that are quite dated by now. This memories are precious but have become “obsolete” or as the poet states forgotten.
Compromised a better title for this poem because the tape becomes tampered by dust. Also memory becomes lost when the tape threads tangle or get dust. On top of that it starts developing loops and sometimes stops overally rendering the tape unusable.
