Everything Is Nostalgia

1981 that's

it as i walk around

outside now

heat like a comeuppance


and all that feeling

as i walk

remembering

myself like i think


i was

not bad

just real enough

to laugh


that one summer

1981

stands out because

i was alone mostly


it was

misery right?

no just

what it needed to be


i had access to

a 1972 chevrolet

malibu

black like


darth vader

and also

a skinny yellow

moped


a brain-damaged helicopter

i'd take places

working

at that time at the


kentucky fried chicken

mostly spending that

summer eyes wide open

watching movies


alone

between shifts

which you'd think would feel sad

but no it was perfect


so it was changing the fryer grease and

escape to new york

cleaning out the walk-in and clash of the titans

mopping the floors and raiders of the lost ark


the whole world was 2 things

which is nice

when you think about

it


fucking monastic

you can

forget the whole stupid

shebang in a certain fashion


just a paycheck

and a screen

thinking about

nothing else


everything is

nostalgia if you really get down to it

moments flashing by real quick and then

you need to remember


how that flash

is

who you are

what you need


to know

who you are
