Outside of the motel and I'm drunk
Out in August an early star
So slow, green and gold and low
One night so slow, it's green and gold and glowing
I'm knee high and drunk, getting up, held your gaze and fell for us
"Koolwink" by Buffalo-based Del Paxton brings me back to my youth in Seattle, the jangly mid-west style garage rock jam sound and the lyrics put me right back, on my old porch on a warm summer morning, watching the sun come up over green trees, beer in hand, anticipating a short rest and another long day of sunshine and shenanigans.
