Sitting In The Dark by Frank Reardon

Sitting in the dark
while Rambo runs
across the TV screen
like some bullshit hero
dipped in vasoline.
Whatever happened
to lively barrooms,
the album Nebraska,
and loud stories shared
in between sips of beer?
What ever happened
to the full throttle,
no questions asked,
restless, barrel chested,
I don’t give a shit sexuality
of a rusted out
’57 Chevy?
