Socal Locale

Santa Barbara/Ostrichland/Los Angeles, California. [June 2019]

Now let me welcome everybody to the Wild Wild West
A state that’s untouchable like Eliot Ness

Hustlers grab your guns
Your shadow weighs a ton
Driving down the 101

It’s the edge of the world and all of western civilization
The sun may rise in the East at least it’s settled in a final location

Stopped into a church
I passed along the way
Well, I got down on my knees
And I pretend to pray

Looking out beyond Knapp’s Castle
Drove above a blanket of fog to get here
Hello World
Swing with a view
Too much California sun…

“I’m an Emu-tional eater”
The most beautiful species of Ostrichland
Spread your wing and (pretend you can) fly
3x emus or Cerberus?
Art imitates life

“Who has never killed an hour? Not casually or without thought but carefully: a premeditated murder of minutes. The violence comes from a combination of giving up, not caring, and a resignation that getting past it is all you can hope to accomplish. So you kill the hour. You do not work, you do not read, you do not daydream. If you sleep it is not because you need to sleep. And when at last it is over, there is no evidence: no weapon, no blood, and no body. The only clue might be the shadows beneath your eyes or a terribly thin line near the corner of your mouth indicating something has been suffered, that in the privacy of your life you have lost something and the loss is too empty to share.” -Mark Z. Danielewski, House of Leaves
