Meeting Nick Drake on the Pink Moon

collage with photo of group in old style swimsuits and the cutout 
        			words the miracle is we slept through all kinds of locations
        			under an old memor of time spent by the beach a cool breeze filtering through
        			hot friends these shutters inform the memory bunks movie nights on beanbags a beach holiday
        			the open corridor
