in long -
we're vultures cutting our teeth out on the front lawn under
the mosquito-clouded ten p.m. blackness, sitting on the damp grass
where neighbors' headlights burn yellow holes into the backs of our eyes,
discussing what shit your brother said yesterday & where we're going to college
(you hate me for choosing new york, is it a bad thing i still have two years to
decide the time to diffuse that bomb?) & how you hate people who stand in-line at dominick's
& talk into the blue-tooth stapled to their ear 'cause we're just that sick
when we really have nothing else to do like the cool kids unrated,
never-before-seen footage with commentary from actors on a blue-ray dvd selling for $8.99
at a local wall(m)art near you.

in short -
we're best friends forever & never,
drunk off chlorine & miller lite & raw sunburn & not enough (maybe too much) time
spent clawing at the sky in a failed attempt to break free
from this bumblefuck town where nothing & almost everything happens
at least for me, anyways
'cause

this summer hangover will eat us (me)
