Pavement

she posted some
lyrics
on craigslist
cause we
were
bored.

people wrote
back.

they knew the song.

She made me
a painted
tile.

It broke but
I still have it.

she wrote shady lane on it.

She knew
somebodies relative,
who
knew the singer.

the relative was
from some remote
part of California.

I think it was his
sister.

The band broke up.
the good ones
almost always
do.

We bought
the first solo album,
but the second
one wasn't as
good.

We saw the other band
perform at Mod Lang.
It wasn't so
good.

It just wasn't the same.

i heard they might
play
a reunion gig.

you know,
to celebrate
20
years ago the 80's
ended.

maybe we'll go.

  1. The sadness of nostalgia. It gets a bit sadder by your entirely undramatic perspective. I really dig your style. Contrasting my own dramatic expression. Can´t help reading on.
    ...love Pavement too btw, -Pixies too, they still kick a bit of ass when they play.
