"Like an angel with two broken wings. Reach for the sky again. Like the devil, meant for better things. I will find my place on high"


Listen. You can do anything.
Stop. No you can't.
LISTEN
You can do anything
Stop!
No you can't

This is the cycle
In my mind
Go
Just GO
Opposing stop

Does this go on in any other?
In any other mind
Of my age
Of one old
Of one young

Stop
Follow the crowd
I will not
So just stop
Go

This day I can do anything
Every adolescent is in their native land
In a parking lot
Ready to explode
Implode
Let whatever lays inside
Burst out
Made of anger
and kitch
Of energy
Everything
Ready for the concrete to feel their hands
And the soles of their feet
And their backs when they fall
Everyone is doing everything
And so I can do anything
Do you see now?

Shows. The liberation of festivals. Especially ones that take place in a parking lot. That begin with a "W". ; )
Then an "A".
