“Dispatch From Flipping A Record" is a flash creative non-fiction piece written in first person. It opens with me holding a vinyl record between my two hands, poised to flip it over, but not rushing through this liminal moment. I ruminate on the intentionality of this space between songs. Next, I cast my gaze down onto the tracks carved in wax and compare them to a poem I am drafting back on my desk. The former is fixed and finished. The latter is rough and fluid. I draw hope for my poem that it too can have space to step into. The piece is separated into paragraphs and comes in just under 500 words.
