When you shop in the nostalgia store by necessity.
When it's Halloween, people
comment on your cool hippie costume,
and you're not wearing a costume.
When you can't figure out why they're playing Dylan on the oldies station.
If you have two old pairs of Levi
Bell Bottoms, that you never wear, hanging in your closet
that you just visit from time to time like a shrine.
When pot is something you have just above your belt.
When acid is something you take Maalox for.
When your hair keeps getting shorter
from the top down.
