I’m Older Than I Wish To Be, mixed media 2010, Izone camera, 2004 Polaroid 200 film, mounted on vinyl (detail).
There is nothing about you playing that 2005 Duran Duran tour DVD so loud that I can hear it over my window unit that is not just so sad and weird, middle aged neighbor bro. I shan’t judge if you want to spin “Girls on Film” or “Rio” and even though “Come Undone” is lowly treacle a girl I loved put it on a mix tape for me so it gets a pass, too, but recent live versions with huge Warrant-drums?
That’s just depressing, is all.
This one girl got mono
& couldn’t go on the trip, we
didn’t have money to chip in so I
was gonna ride the bench
in study hall
while everybody else
held hands on the back of the bus, but
Ms. Crabtree said that since
the sick kid’s folks had
already paid I could go.
Mom squinted and palmed me
a fortune in quarters and singles,
tip money and pocket change, and
I ate so much pizza at the buffet they
had to pull the bus over, my
cheeks sunburn hot, Ms. Crabtree
held my pony tail as I
puked up six dollars of pepperoni.
