Remember when the whole universe was the panoramic
View of our hometown from the top of that hill?
Remember walking up to Old Bob’s front lawn
And picking up chestnuts
And eating them on grandpa’s porch while the leaves fell?
Remember roller blading down Central Ave.
Thinking that inclined 50 yard stretch
Sent us the fastest we would ever go?
Remember sledding down the hill behind my house
And almost tumbling down the cliff onto the railroad tracks?
Remember riding our bikes to the next town over
And the cops gave us a ride home
And the cop knew you because he arrested your dad
For dealing coke?
Remember when we had crushes on those girls
In Ms. Stahlman’s class
But we never called them?
Remember Adrian and Caleb and Austin
And Mike and Harley and Brooke
And Judd and Stevie and Alex?
Yeah, I don’t remember anything either.
