I didn't think you had a culture...

well we did
fires and flat top guitars
and beers passed around
a dozen, or so,  people singing
just belting out
Thorn in my Pride
Wheat Kings
Rockin' in the Free World
Elderly Woman Behind the Counter in a Small Town
 - and so many more

bonding over our Columbia House CDs 
cassette tape libraries
shared, copied, and copied again
townies soaking up the sounds
in a warm beer buzz

campfire whisky

fire light through
Glencairn glass
amber whisky swirls
intense smoky peat
figs, dates, vanilla,
a touch of sea air
in the evening breeze
