I think today will be a good day. It has to be. I woke up with this song in my head and therefore it has to be a good day. This is a song from Benji Hughes double disk release on New West Records entitled, "A LOVE EXTREME." It's pretty sweet; catchy weird pop rock tunes. Benji is everything you want out of a modern rocker-- sensible yet extreme, a 70's rocker look complete with gorgeous hair, and a damn good song writer. Of course he is awesome, he is from North Carolina.

“Three months prior to graduation”
K. Reid

it is only salt water
running down my cheeks
nothing more
not a sign of fear
of doubt
or anxiety

my nerves are fine
my nails are always bitten
to the nub
my cuticles are always sore
from tending the weeded
hang nails

I chose to graduate with
a writing degree
I chose not to file myself
in the standard 9 to 5
I chose the alternative

and now, the route
this life of art
a piercing pursuit
has evoked salt water
running down my cheeks

I am scared
