beyond Montana’s blushing acne there are red cup melodies blasting from blacked out tints weaving blues notes through Rock & Rap distant cries are drowned by Bass or maybe Bud (light) a haze of teenage eyes they might as well be ghost riders whip game copped from GTA these pubescents are a Vice to their City blooming sidewalk sloths like flowerbeds
beyond Montana is a country of bar stools where bar tenders play therapists and therapists play coroners precedents are shots of whiskey - taken to the head and reflected in flooded eyes
beyond Montana is a country of MADD mothers and SADD students beyond Montana is a country of unexpecting pedestrians beyond Montana is a field ~a field of wing-clipped snow angels
