on New Year's Day I saw Ian MacKaye
I do not know him... he does not know me

it was New Year's Day and I was feeling festive
so... I did a u-turn on the bike and rolled up on the sidewalk

we exchanged hellos... I thanked him for his music and the effect his music had on me then turned to go away
before I could leave Ian said... it is only music
I said... I know... but I like music
Ian replied... I like music too
