do you read harry crews?
haven't you dug deeper
than bukowski?
my friend reads nietzsche,
and i say read kierkegaard!
i would do anything
to help us.
my best friend (i know
what a cliche right?)
never went to college,
but he found these
forms, just like college
educated me. i love
you, this world can
tear us along class
lines, but: your mother
still cooks eggs, and
goes to work at shop
n' save. oh, what
fragmented rumours of youth!
