Benjamin Seretan

Ben tries to play music that sounds like the time he and some buddies got it in their minds to go drink 40s on Brighton Beach after last call and they took the Q train all the way down from North Brooklyn and bought their bottles through one of the revolving bulletproof cases and they walked down to the shore over the part that was still covered in snow and sat in the sand on the beach at 5am talking and swigging and seeing the lights turn on as people got up to go to work and as the sun rose stupidly but full of smiles Ben took off his clothes and got in the water in February and his friends held his clothes and helped dry him off with his scarf and they all ate egg sandwiches and coffee and fell asleep on each other’s shoulders on the train back with all the commuters. Or that time that it was raining and everyone was playing their favorite song of that day on the stereo and when the rain broke they all ran up to the roof to set off bottle rockets and roman candles before it started raining again and there were sparks flying everywhere. Or that time his band from high school played what was probably their last show and sweat was steaming off of Alex while he played drums and everyone was rolling around swapping instruments and jumping in the pool and we all got in the shower together and the few that survived the joyful mayhem went to the diner.
