As I mentioned during this coversation with my friend Punk Poet, Scott Laudati, this podcast has literally taken eight years to finally come to fruition. I learned of Scott’s work in 2014 when I was asked to review his poetry book the OG Hawaiian Shirts in the Electric Chair, for The Punk Archive, a book that I still reference 8 years later. Happy Listening!

My Bluest Valentine
don’t bake me a birthday cake this year. let’s go to wawa and buy a carton of our old cigarettes and drive to the poconos, to the mini golf where we made dirty bets around the windmill and both of us got a rash that night from the heart-shaped hot tub. or we can go back to your parents basement with the wood paneled walls and the one cold night we laid under the heater and you whispered, “pretend it’s aspen.” let's get married this time like we swore we would at 17 when all we wanted was to do drugs and fall in love and we were still young enough to be good at both.
