about

A dream of dark and troubling things.

lyrics

I dreamed I lay in an opium den in the Mission district
of San Francisco last night, drinking a bottle of Scotch.
I fell asleep and was awakened
by a belligerent gang of teenagers spoiling for a fight.
Instead of fighting
I threw a roll of sourdough bread out onto Valencia Street.
An ugly water glass fell over and smashed
all of my delicate and beautiful champagne and martini glasses.
Then I had to pay up and go home.
