dustin from 2002

dustin wore sutter-brand jeans

and striped polos

from aeropostale

and pacific sun

that’s what they called it back then

it wasn’t pac sun yet

then he graduated in 02

some kids threw a kegger

way up north

with a couple hundred people

everyone slept in their cars

or in the field

around 1 A-em dustin said the wrong shit

to someone

and had his lights knocked out

then some people pissed all over him

then later someone pulled his pants 

down so his dick was showing
