the boy was angry, he was lost
throwing things around
throwing things at people
wanting them to beg
they asked him what was wrong and he couldnt say her name
she had left him and he couldnt find his way
without his shoes without her guidance
without the piece of him that she had earned
the boy was angry, he was lost

pumping iron in the backstage light
windblown hair and jeans on tight
ready to make a mark on the world
she felt ready and afraid
confident and strangely ashamed
open and young and vibrant and strong
the lights go out and the silence falls
heart rate climbing
the sweating walls
they hold their breath she closes her eyes
dizzying height above them all

#7: Do You Remember This Girl?

you may remember this lovely lady from one of our first posts about teenagers explaining pez dispensers to foreigners. well shes back to explain the health benefits of showing lots of tit, wearing unchipped nail polish and picking your nose all at the same time. this is a time honoured canadian tradition, and is indigenous to the saskachewan prairies. although the gesture is provocative in and of itself, it is generally part of the canadian courtship rituals. while people in other developed countries waste their time "dating" and "falling in love" and then "getting divorced," canadian teenagers simply show some tit, pick their noses and wear fresh nail polish. whichever girl can hold the pose longest is considered the most desirable, and the males will battle for her affections indefinitely.
