Union Station, Three AM… still some dues to pay. The drug of dreams beckoned, again… “Welcome to L.A.”
I was home. Back from a few lost days soaked in musky halibut tomatillo stew at Ensenada Joe’s. Where dark sad memories of a little sister lost there overpowered the strippers’ “Que paso?” ‘s.
As I slipped back into L.A.’s heat, I felt my old friend, doubt, at my side… telling me “Give it up. Stop trying. She’s not alive.” And I felt that tickle on the back of my skin, that knowing that I was a hack. And that Aggie was lost in the city’s angels that hovered in the mist above the lights with wings that were singed and black.
