“Get yer new! Get yer latest!” The shopkeepers use up all their lungs for the glossy labels meticulously displayed in the windows. There’s a lot to keep up with, these days. Nights are longer and skirts are shorter. You’ve gotta grow new ears, new eyes, new tongues, or you’re gonna get left behind. It ain’t just a new dance move here or a feisty attitude there, you’ve gotta build a whole new foundation on the new. You see these daddys with tilted hats walking ‘round and you just know that they get it. They get that you need the cigarettes, and the hooch, and that you’ve gotta get the right ones. You can build yourself up and ain’t nobody gotta know what you knocked down. You’ve just gotta get the right foundation, see? And you’ve gotta make sure that whatever you use to build it is made of the right stuff. You’ve gotta talk the talk, and walk the walk, and make sure you turn out that corner stone so the label shows. [Kathleen McCampbell]
