Zombies in Snapbacks

Zombies in Snapbacks

A Poem by Stoop Kid
"

ZIS reflects on moments of eagerness and the sudden understanding of the fondness I had for this friend of mine in October while him and I went on a stroll for beer before a Halloween party.

"
Like you were a first trip to NYC,
or a perfect view of the cosmos
from that clearing on Sylvan Avenue,
I was agape and fawning while you sauntered
out from your double doors, to the end of your driveway,
to where I rocked on my heels eagerly
on Allen Dr. at 6:23

Come 7:15, we bedecked your body
with stripped and frayed Armani
in tribute to the Walkers we've seen;
cool-white fluorescence drew emphasis
on the harmony between your ivory simper
and each cobalt marble that rolled
and flicked beneath your tuckered eyelids
by some sort of beatnik artistry.

Frankly, my chest swelled with fever
when I noted the scrunch of your nose
askance to liquid-latex applications,
or the way black cherry sap wept
from the corners of your mouth
while dislodging the blood-capsule
in-between your molars
and your stately, hollow cheek at 7:50

And I noticed around 8:00,
when I had slowed you to a halt
near the crosswalk on Montauk
between Coastal and Le Soir
to fix the scar-tissue on your chin,
that if I ever knew there to be one,
you made a most stunning zombie
with my Tom & Jerry cap lining your scalp;

Which made the stain left by the makeup
worth the trade of my hat
in exchange for your company,
as we picked up a twelve-pack
at the 7-11 just down the street
before we returned to the party.

"Where we trading my cap in exchange for your company." Such an adoring and beautiful line. Funny how a simple artifact or article of clothing is able to bring two people so together, helping them build a bond. Along their lives, they will always remember that moment, I'm sure. I know I remember simple moments like that with people. This tells a beautiful story, I adored it!
