Why Minecraft is more than just another video game
Maine to Georgia

you know this game

yes in a rented room in bangor, pa
where dad and uncle irving went to live during the depression

no work for grandfather in nyc, grandma wrote her mother every day to testify

yes in downtown seattle
where you sashayed first, a loaf of bread under each arm
and a pack of cigarettes in your sexy jeans
the girl ben franklin as a young anarchist no date to keep
no one else’s time either

where the pavillion (a pavillion!) is already set up for a wedding
