the kissing tour

i want august 14, 1987 with you

once before i die

in this dimension we’re both 19

driving in from ohio to philly

in your shitty car

to see

the cure

the kissing tour

at the spectrum arena

14.50 a ticket

looking like debbie harry and robert smith had angry babies

i have a flask of bourbon in my bag

you have a joint in your wallet behind your college id

we haven’t fucked up our lives yet

we haven’t made irrevocable choices

we haven’t numbed ourselves with antidepressants

we can’t conceive of mortgages or lawn maintenance

maybe they’ll play

the kiss

for their first song

it’s a thursday night

and the rest of our lives

will happen friday
