The Noose of Nostalgia
dannyprice

it is not just missing
 1
the good times
 2
 
 
slamdancing in a circle pit
 3
with your best buds at a rock show
 4
 
 
blacklit basement parties
 5
doing lines of coke off cd cases
 6
 
 
loquacious drunkards
 7
gorgeous people
 8
attainable pussy
 9
 
 
last calls
 10
and after-bars
 11
with cheap pot
 12
and cheaper beer
 13
 
 
you'd be a goddamn fool
 14
not to miss all that
 15
 
 
but it's when
 16
you genuinely reminisce
 17
the fucking misery of it all
 18
 
 
vomiting up a stomach full of vodka
 19
at 11:30 in the morning
 20
on the way to the next
 21
watering hole
 22
 
 
listening to the Agents of Oblivion record
 23
on repeat by candle light
 24
with a green plastic
 25
bottle of scotch
 26
 
 
writing incoherent
 27
and unintelligible poems
 28
as if they were a grand suicide missions
 29
 
 
turning blackouts into halos
 30
and making romances out of horrors
 31
 
 
as if pissing yourself
 32
and burning frozen pizzas
 33
were noble claims to glory
 34
 
 
the memory of the knot
 35
against the back of your neck
 36
tickles
 37
 
 
now
 38
that
 39
is addiction
