A Book Of Poems, A Book Of Knowing Comeback

On the June 15, 2017 edition of the 68Comeback Special, practically all we could think about was how it was just a week until the one thing and the other thing, but we strove hard to remain in the moment, except there were a few times when we caught ourselves thinking about the past, but in those cases we tried not to be too hard on ourselves and instead use accounts of ourselves delivered in the third person to deliver us back to the path on which we…were…or are…or planned on being on…or…
