yesterday in Los Angeles I saw a building with an elephant trunk
on Hollywood Boulevard
segmented gray funnels pouring plaster,
paper, and plastic debris into a giant dumpster.
there are a lot of a colors here, which is nice,
change of pace
thing are immediate here; decision-making,
the possibilities on and on down
my breath is shallow, my back is kinked.
dirty everywhere. and vibrant.
words taste better here.
everything tastes better here.
I love you, Courtney Barnett. Thank you for not burying your vocals in the mix or under swaths of swirling reverb. and for playing guitar, and for singing about things other than love between a boy and a girl. and for freshening up 90s single-mom rock.
