we and me and you
we all want to look back,
to remember the good ol' days.
If such they were.
If such they were good, I mean.
Do you remember now?
The innocent days.
The carefree, careless, stoned school days.
The Friday night football,
be home by curfew,
No. 2 pencil days.
Back in those days,
when the temple of unrequited love lectured from his soapbox,lectured from our parents, teachers, televisions, dealers,
I hung out with the Third Street Anarchists that summer.
We made up conspiracy theories in the backyard
over tequila shooters and acid tabs
and when god left,
because he did,
when god disappeared
I left that small town prison for the city of dreams,
where the anti-existentialists rule and nothing alters everything.
Everything is altered.
Maybe, especially here.
