Pay Phones at the Portland Train Station

Black and silver
Call boxes are
Ready for use
But are now
Forgotten
Obsolete
Inferior
And redundant

Once they were
Cutting edge tech
Used by everyone
And thought to be
Essential forever

Time is a juggernaut
Moving inexorably
and uncaringly
Towards an unknowable
Destination where
Man had best
Watch himself

Lest he too
Due to his clever
Inventiveness and
All-consuming avarice

Finds himself
Relegated to
The very same
Twilight Zone
of obscurity
And obsolescence
