The stories come,
Slowly at first.
Then widening, bursting,
into rivers of memories.
An article, a report.
The latest projects.
A new highway, a new line.
For development, convenience, growth.
The side effects:
Nostalgia becomes fashionable.
Old is hip, vintage is artistic.
Memories transform into profits.
Some stories are saved from oblivion,
But many slip away
from the shelves of memorabilia.
