Dead Flower Motel

one day standing above a cliff
I was looking down at the ocean, rattled

30 Miles to Mexico

30 miles to Mexico…
by dirt road only
dead in the cab. lost track of the dogs
burn out sunlight dream..
the dogs were happy to be out of the car.
my eyes are burned by the sun.
bought some $3 shades from the
Mexican lady at the gas station…

put on a Cream record

2 days into Marfa and the west texas majesty

Sent Dead Flower Motel off to mastering last monday, which means it’s time to move on. Begin a new wander. With a new stride. A new ear. a new eye. so i’ve traveled south west to Marfa for a few days to take photographs, journal, do laundry, walk deep into the hills, drink new wines, eat in new restaurants, then disappear and write.  bought 2 pounds of locally roasted coffee. and spent most of yesteday outside. drank wine late. then i woke up early and the hotel room was cold.

We’ve just added some new shows. We’ll be at the Ghost Room with the Lonesome Heroes and Telegraph Canyon April 3 at 10. probably a $5 cover.

And we’ll be at the Mean Eyed Cat April 13 8PM Free.
