Why Thurston Moore Left Northampton
by Jasen Ribadenera
Buy a cigar / I look around.
I’m being so quiet so I hear the yells from the bored generation.
I’m in charge of nowhere to go.
Motley Crue is on the radio.
“Home Sweet Home”
But the street freaks are guarding the convenience store
with paper bag legs spread eagle.
Puffing the cigar I hum the national anthem.
I know I’m ridiculous,
I fell in love.
I sing the theme song from “Who’s The Boss?” and ad-lib the parts I can’t remember.
