Inner Sanctum ~ list poem

Inner Sanctum

no bigger than a walk in closet
          home to everything important
twin bed tucked into a corner
          meeting place & library chair
dresser, of course
          clothes have to go somewhere
1950s school desk tucked into the open closet
          already too small in 1968
one small record stand
          holding the center of the universe
record player
          one day replaced by a turntable
air filled with the voices of prophets
          Eric Burdon, The Beatles, Buffalo Springfield
one small room
          window on the world

The prompt for Day 28 of National/Global Poetry Writing Month at napowrimo.net
is to write a poem describing a bedroom from your past.
