Guitar, bass, Casio, laptop, and drum machines.
They turn their apartments into time machines.

They set up their home recording studios
with their turntables and their drum machines.

The sound waves fill their ears and make their brains buzz.
They experiment with their sonic machines.

The people begin to dance to the cosmic vibrations
As they make beats with the time machines.

Absent are the haters and naysayers,
to make way for the better machines.

Their minds travel to distant planets.
Their minds are space machines.

Astral projection through rhythm and melody.
They make beats with their homemade time machines.

    Was uncertain about this drabble at first, but on a second read I see that it is a really good drabble. Nice work!
