In Which There Were Explosions On Both Sides

Sports Corner: Week 3

by George Ducker

“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.
