bearded boys in flannel shirts
Leaves of Grass and On The Road
tucked in the back pockets
of their low-slung bells
of their cutoffs
the smell of woodsmoke
and hand-rolled cigs
sweat and sawdust
mixed with alcohol
The Band throbbing
on the stereo
Dylan and Young
Van The Man waiting in the wings
ideals and dreams
sarcasm and wit
music and desire
those bearded boys of summer
