Written in August of 2015 by Ethan Griswold


hey Joe College
the welcome wagon welcomes you
make yourself a gin and tonic
you worked so hard to get so loose

sought out wisdom
from your old mate down the block
he pats your back and calls you bum
can't cure a hangover with Tums

well we're in denial about how young we are
we can't afford to put new tires on grandma's car
can't suspend the forward motion of time
here we stand
now we know we can't amend our tragic summer mustache plan
so get the razor
shaving cream
it's time to trim
and wash away

eggshell-white walls
accentuate my t-shirt tan
cryptic texts from my ex-girlfriend
Corona bottles line the van
couldn't believe it
when Mikey did his brother in
leather recliner's getting frayed
I haven't worn a shirt in seven days
