early september 1984

it's 1130 pm friday night, january 22 2010
most of my massachusetts friends are back at the lucky dog, right where i left them.
i was thinking about when i first started sewing, it was the end of the summer
before my junior year in highschool and i had just wiped out on my moped in
front the church, tearing the knee of my back-to-school gap corduroy pants (rust red).

i had to fix them before my parents came home. i used what i had - a bullet proof iron on
denim knee patch. pants inside-out and lining up the torn edges on the knee, i discreetly
labeled myself as a nerd.
