Younger Us

Version 2

The winter you left I thought I saw you in every car crash. The first time in a compact spinning its wheels in the ditch. Tow truck, rubberneckers, gridlock. Snow covering the road, a skin too easily broken.

Those are the opening lines of a story inspired by the song “Younger Us” by Japandroids, as seen and heard below. I read it as part of the Rock & Roll Reading Series at AWP Seattle in February 2014.

 

Read it in full over at Medium. And give that song a listen.
