McCallister/McNally

We were 14 when the world exploded.
She’d stuffed a globe full of firecrackers
and we watched the neighbouring states
fall like meandering snow flakes on their way to somewhere.

We were too young to buy them
and had paid her older brother to go in.
When he came out with the goods in his jacket
and the money in his pocket, we didn’t complain.

We weren’t too young to take an interest in the world
and so we bought the globe ourselves.
“Keep the change, ya filthy animal”,
and us, laughing all the way outside.

  1. Get the “F” back to Freddy Beach, Ya Filthy Animal Bastard.

  2. I def thought McCallister was a typo. Thought it was McAllister without a doubt. IMDB to the rescue, proving me wrong since ’04.

    We have a love/hate thing goin.
