modern baseball (for vince and skyler)

my favorite band announced that they are “taking a break today”

some of my favorite memories i’ve ever lived had this band in them

a summer well spent

on back roads with my best friends

in my favorite car that doesn’t run anymore

and all of the miles we put on it

the hours we drove

and the hours we spent looking for parking

and the red fucking car we almost hit (fuck that guy)

all the snapchat videos

all of the memories we shared with each other

and the random places we stopped at to eat (even when we weren’t hungry)

all the cigarettes and laughs and tears and the yelling


and all the alcohol we consumed

the hotel beds we slept on

putting on temporary tattoos with milk at a waffle house in allentown

so far from our hometown

but my friends made it home

this band made philadelphia feel like home

and for some reason i know

that nothing may ever make us feel like that again

and i know that all good things come to an end

i know the game by now

my friends live here and there and everywhere

but not together anymore

and maybe music is the one thing that makes us feel less apart.

“and you, you ask if i gotta leave,

and i wish that i could say no.”
