"Now I'm back here in the Midwest
Where everything's familiar and sincere
But everything's external
Would nothing just happen to you here?"

It was SO HARD to pick a song that would fit in the collection from Defiance, Ohio, an anti-capitalist punk band from Columbus with songs such as "I'm Against the Government" and "I Don't Want Solidarity If It Means Holding Hands With You" so I went with something that sort of fit the spring nostalgia feeling with "Hairpool". 

Weirdly, I did not grow up listening to Defiance, Ohio but after devouring a decent part of their discography, I feel like I might as well have. They seem like something I would have listened to.

Hairpool, the yarn, is a tonal pool blue. Obviously.
