*IS* This Really Happening?
I know it's pointless to bash Simmons these days, but......IS HE FUCKING SERIOUS WITH THIS SHIT???
An older black guy is driving. He looks like he has aged 10 years in the past three. He's gazing ahead in silence, lost in his own thoughts, oblivious to the stares from the out-of-towner covered in powdered sugar. Meanwhile, his car radio happens to be blaring a classic Tupac song, and what's really blowing my mind is that it's the chorus of the perfect song for this particular moment. If you froze the moment and asked me to pick a song, I would have picked this song. And now it's playing. And I'm frozen in midbite. I can't believe it. I'm standing there in complete disbelief.
Keep ya head up … ooooh child, things are gonna get easier … keep ya head up … ooooh child, things will get brighter.
Is this really happening?
Ooooh child, things are gonna get easier … keep ya head up … ooooh child, things will get brighter.
And just like that, he drove away.
