John Darnielle once wrote that ‘Craig Finn’s lyrics make everyone else sound like ametur hour at a poetry open mic night’. Well, I am an ametur slam poet, and i’ve met 2 other fans at gigs. One told me I sounded like Craig, which was both cool and embarrassing, since my poetry style is kinda a rip-off of his. Another one had a poetry zine called Heaven Is A Place You Can’t Find Your Cigerettes, that I wish I still had.
Wish I was still in touch with them. Have you met any other fans in the wild?
I've got nothing for you darling but a story to tell about the rain on the pavement and the way that it fell.
