I was the new kid on the block

went over to talk make some hello’s

they were on the corner talking low of music

& I asked who they were into

& he launched into some idiot list

bands I could never have heard of

another long list of local bar bands

indie groups who never make the score

& I had to look around check my reflection

yep, we were grown up hairy ass men

I thanked him kindly for the comprehensive list

made my excuses & left

this was going to be one of those jobs

where the in crowd hate the new crowd

& the work feels like eternity because

some kid never got loved enough at school

has to recreate the playground here
