It Came Undone


It was a very good year for city girls who lived up the stair
With all that perfumed hair
And it came undone 
When i was twenty-one

It Was A Very Good Year
(Ervin Drake)

...... Did What They Could



His managers sweated
They did what they could
They schemed
And they wheedled -
But it did no good
The months slid by
The title hung high
No pansies need apply
excerpt from
The Set Up
Joseph Moncure March
1928

Destroy or Infect You


           Cities have characters, pathologies that can make or destroy or infect you, states of mind that run through daily life as surely as a fault line.

Quarrel we Had


When a quarrel we had needs mending
Does it mean that our love is ending
Darlin i need you, lately i find
You're out of my heart
And i'm out of my mind
