Sports Corner: Week 3

“The King of Carrot Flowers Pt. 1” – Neutral Milk Hotel (mp3)
When you were young
You were the king of carrot flowers
Atlanta 38, Kansas City 14
And how you built a tower tumbling through the trees
And holy rattlesnakes that fell all around your feet
Miami 38, New England 13
And your mom would stick a fork right into daddy’s shoulder
Washington 24, Arizona 17
And dad would throw the garbage all across the floor
Jacksonville 23, Indianapolis 21
As we would lay and learn what each other’s bodies were for
Minnesota 20, Carolina 10
And this is the room, one afternoon I knew I could love you
Denver 34, New Orleans 32
And from above you how I sank into your soul
Tampa Bay 27, Chicago 24
Into that secret place where no one dares to go
Philadelphia 15, Pittsburgh 6
And your mom would drink until she was no longer speaking
Miami 38, New England 13!
And dad would dream of all the different ways to die
MIAMI 38, NEW ENGLAND 13
Each one a little more than he could dare to try.
Dallas 27, Green Bay 13

Giving this poem to girls you break up with is the greatest joy we can imagine.
Molly changed minds with photosets.
We were so much more succinct back in the day.
