after the game

what about
all the other days

all the other days
after the playoffs

we can spoil
our ballots &
our appetites & read until
our eyes dry out
because it's not the end
of the world
or the semester
it just looks like

it is just
the end of the season

Whatever, I'm a flames fan . . . and you guys are presumably Nucks fans.

It sucks, but its not us. they just live in our nation state.
