Out With The Old, In With The YouBY CASSIUS KENT
I have faith in you. You can change. You can be better, stronger, faster, even more so than the song pretends. Your epiphany might happen after dinner time. It might happen at the after party when her kiss sets on you. From that time forward she will smile everywhere you are. With her you can eat anywhere, even at Wendy’s. You can go anywhere. She will dance to mainstream shit if she has to. You will walk from Bleeker to St. Marks with her arm inside yours and listen to her point out the Physical Graffiti building and where Basquiat had his studio and where Ryan Gosling broke up that fight. There are those who think that you can’t change but that’s because they haven’t felt the power of love. And when you change… they will be waiting for the fall. Waiting with trembling hands and icy breath to say that they told you so. But they will be wrong. Sorry motherfuckers. We became. We are a part of history now. While you were out getting your tattoos and your other accoutrements, we were on our fifth ground zero, staring at an empty page as the sun’s yellow beams turned orange and was about to disappear into the Indian sky to become the source of inspiration known as The Comedown. We don’t need help anymore. We have found love.
