Noise reduction birthday haiku

Thomas Dolby, Oct. 14, 1958

Thomas Dolby, born
Thomas Morgan Robertson,
This date, ’58

Synth pop rode New Wave
He blinded us with science,
Went hyperactive

But beyond tight hits,
Techno chops, he could compose
With depth, emotion

Melodies moody
Or bright, alluring layers
Of sound and story

Constructed a world
Nostalgic, futuristic
Timeless voyages

So happy birthday,
Mr. Dolby. After cake,
You’ll create anew
