IT’S A “LISTEN TO THE BEATLES ON VINYL THROUGH HEADPHONES” KIND OF NIGHT

after a
“walking home in the cold without a jacket”
kind of day

where i talked to
“god, you love to hear yourself talk”
kinds of people

who have
“i am passionate about reality t.v. and partying to bad pop music”
kind of personalities

when all i want is a
“this is just life; hold on and don’t fall asleep during the pretty parts”
kind of vibe in the air

or
“sometimes sitting alone drinking whiskey and reading whatever it is in my hands”
kinds of afternoons

where
“i have way better shoes than all of you”
kinds of people are missing

when the air is
“i don’t know what temperature or density this air is, but i fucking love it”
kind of air

it’s a
“whatever we feel like.
don’t stop for hitchhikers.
command your troops to battle.
pretend to love your enemies.
kiss and tell.
morning-after pill.
age-defying cream.
music video marathon.
green grass
with a body in the basement.
eight-bit delusion.
fix yourself.”
kind of world.

when all i want is a
“listen to the beatles on vinyl in my headphones”
kind of night

  1. And you write the “isn’t this all so totally witty and pretty” kind of poems,
    That gives me God-just-blessed-some-people-with-a-discount-on-the-gift-of-word thoughts!

  2. Absolutely superb!! Wonderful societal piece, what poetry, this is just phenomenal, am in awe, love this! Brilliant!! And that last stanza, oh yes, too perfect- converging with that feeling absolutely, perfect tone to the piece. Masterful write!!

  3. Hey Brice, this is some ill stuff you got here. I dig it. And thanks for the follow. Definitely returning the favor and faithfully checking back for more delicious writing.

    You satisfy my
    “I just want to read the natural thoughts in people’s minds without being super confused or extremely bored”
    poetic appetite

    • Especially the super confused part! I hate when I’m reading something and I’m thinking “this is super good style-wise, but I have no idea what they’re talking about.

      Thanks for hitting me up, Ashley.

      Take care,
      Brice
