The Hell of it All Waking from earth-shattered Dreams in a windswept world, I pry open my computer to Pay homage to the word, Koreatown did nothing for me, It brought nothing to life, was Dying before my eyes, The merchants with their Colt 1911s And sawed-off shotguns beneath The registers. Glendale is a huge Mayberry - boring to death, but Safe and quiet. Glendale is a non-event To LA - that's why angels prefer to Come here on faint ancient nights When the moon is at half-strength And the cats howl their hunger; The venom plaguing LA seems Miles away.
