"But Still" (with apologies to Stephan Jenkins)

November 1, 2019

 

 

I never really listened to Third Eye Blind in high school or college. 

They were that band that played in the background at dorm parties and school dances or

on the radio when you were parked at Devereux Beach at night

making out in your girlfriend’s car and the windows

got fogged up. 

Now

sitting in my car,

windows down 

the last shreds of summer breeze through. 

Familiar yet foreign. 

“Something’s gone, you withdraw”

Halfway between the grocery store and home. 

“And I’m not strong like before”

Halfway between an ambitious kid 

and a middle-aged dad. 

“I've lost myself there's nothing left, it's all gone.”

Still a bit of each, but fading.
