Sentimental Journey: Variation on an Old Song

"Gonna take,"
they crooned,
"a sentimental journey."
The place is habit now

you can say I miss it
and can't bear to feel
the customs fade.
I travel there

on Google Earth
to imagine
the streets,
trace where places are

I no longer enter,
goodbyes long said.
Electrical memories are
cleaner than real ones.
