I Miss The Bowery Ballroom

to love,
and all of the above,
all I want to do
is dance
to live hipster indie music
in the middle of the venue
that made me.

I saw The Tallest Man on Earth
open up for Bon Iver there.
I saw The Weakerthans there
with Crazy Suzanne, 
a girl, not a band. 
I saw King Khan there,
and did coke backstage
with the drummer.
I saw Shovels & Rope 
alone there. 

Aside from movies,
meteorites and memories,
the place on Delancey
will always have me.
