I went out again today
Me and that heavy-metal bar
Every day can be Friday if you confess to a cup of sweet red wine
Air smells of liberty
Tomorrow is the end of the world
I’m enveloped in an air of vastness.
Club next door is playing Mamas and Pappas – California Dreamin’
I am seventeen again and a world awakens inside me
I miss the father I never had
That boy that never held my hand
End of poem.
