why you'd want to live here
    #4180971 - 05/16/05 02:55 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

i'm in los angeles today: it smells like an airport runway. jet fuel stenches in the cabin and lights flickering at random.

i'm in los angeles today: garbage cans comprise the medians of freeways always creaping even when the population's sleeping.

and i can't see why you'd want to live here.

i'm in los angeles today: asked a gas station employee if he ever had trouble breathing and he said "it varies from season to season, kid."

it's where our best are on display: motion picture actors' houses maps are never ever current so save your film and $15.

and i can't see why you'd want to live here.
billboards reach past the tallest buildings,
"we are not perfect but we sure try."
as UV rays "degradate" our youth with time.

the vessel keeps pumping us through this entropic place in the belly of the beast that is californ-i-a, i drank from a faucet and i kept my receipts for when the weigh me on my way out (here nothing is free).
the greyhounds keep coming dumping locusts into the street until the gutters overflow and los angeles thinks, "i might explode someday soon."

it's a lovely summer's day and i can almost see a skyline through a thickening shroud of egos. (is this the city of angeles or demons?)
here the names are what remain: stars encapsulate the gold lame and they need constant cleaning for when the tourists begin salivating.

you can't swim in a town this shallow - you will most assuredly drown tomorrow.

that entire album is full of beautiful poetry (and music at that!)

here is another favorite of mine:

debate exposes doubt

the workadays were propping the bar quietly erasing the week
and i was in a cornerbooth thinking (quietly pretending to read)
about the impossiblity of one to love unconditionally
and the words that we drive into the ground:
their repetition starts to thin their meaning.

then everything got frighteningly still as they entered and intersected the floor
and i tried to choke my stare at the perfection that others would kill for.
but all of the parts are the same on every face (few variables change).
the differences pale when compared to the similarity they share

finally there is clarity and there is purpose after all, but every night ends the same as i'm collapsing once more by your side.
finally there is clarity: this tiny life is making sense. and every drop numbs the both of us, but i alone am staggering.

Just let everything flow, just flow right to the center of everything. You gotta turn off your mind and relax, and then just float downstream...

The cops are well-groomed, with
Muscled physiques in butt town
Their tan uniforms are tailored in chic
In butt town
Any young black male who walks down the street
Is gonna get stopped by a car full of meat
But the girl with the hair
Flies by in her underwear-

She?s done nothing so far to deserve that car
When you live in butt town
You gotta get down
But in butt town I?m learnin?
In butt town I?m earnin?
In butt town I?m turnin?
Into my worst nightmare

I?m tellin? you, it?s a motley crew in butt town
Monday you?re new, and friday you?re through
In butt town
The producer is wily, and owns what he sells
The talent is eager to go straight to hell
Th tits are amazing, and everyone?s gazing
At some body part-
That?s the nature of art in butt town

All over butt town dreams have a show down
All over butt town values are thrown down
But in butt town I?m learnin?
In butt town I?m earnin?
In butt town I?m turnin?
Into my worst nightmare

In butt town baby
I?m gonna be a star
I?m gonna shake my butt far
Now here we go
I?m gonna shake my butt
Shake my butt shake my butt
In butt town
