ALKALINE amethyst on your chin secret recipe for hot brown last time you grocery shopped brown leaves in the hall state halfway between sleep bottom of the bedsheets last time Toto had a hit movies released last Friday wakefulness against your toe maze of ice crystals unbearable weight of your skin frozen stacks of bills in the basement life unexamined scent of guava in Tiffin last thing you need * * * LIVE AT NAPA STATE MENTAL HOSPITAL I was thinking more about muscles than I was about rockabilly but the end result was the same, two uncontrollable legs and a pair of chopsticks across the room, chili sauce and shrimp splattered on the wall. There has to be some fiberglass around here somewhere, my brain conjures up out of nowhere as my seat rockets backwards and I head face first for the floor * * *
