today I'm going to feel great
I'm going to drive in the big city
and roll my windows down
all the way. even though it's raining

today I'm going to reflect
I'm going to write a letter
to my girl. not a love letter
leaking luscious lunacies
but a letter of discontinuation
I think

today I'll write a verse
I'll sit in my bed and I'll listen
to rachael yamagata and I'll let
my thoughts free onto a canvas
of sorts

tonight I'll get drunk
I'll go to a wedding in a castle
and I'll drink some wine
I'll talk to lots of strangers
and drink lots of whiskey

tonight I'll get high
I'll laugh with my friend
and I'll stand in the grass
I'll crane my neck and stare
at the sky and I'll watch the
fireworks tonight

tonight I'll have a ball
I'll drink and I'll smoke
and I'll dance and I'll smile
and I'm going to write a book
about how bad it hurts to have
a burning heart

The author's comments:
For the record I did all these things. I was invited to a wedding by my friend and we misbehaved as hard as we could. There was fireworks AND free booze!
