We are Waves, a poem:

We are, all of us, waves in the ocean

Made of the stuff around us

In fact, the given name comes from the month, just like the name “April” comes from a month. Back in Ceasar’s day, there wasn’t a letter…

i just read a lengthy article on the ramones, which was pretty stupid. have always felt writing about rock is pretty ridiculous. instead, really you just need to watch this. if you get it, you get it. if you don’t, know the rest of us did.
