Enticed and enthralled, a catalogued world
Collecting, conserving, collating
Looking pristine, like records on shelves
Your words are precise, affecting

The love you confer on the sources you store
A backpackers' guide to enchantment
Impulsiveness lies in a logical mind
And cascades through your every encounter

So leave the archives a second and put the pen down
Leave out the provenance forget the respect des fonds
Feels like enough retrospection
So just for today we'll use find and replace
Typex the past from the archives
Where every source has been twisted apart
If there's one thing I've learned from the past
It's to stop looking back at the past
