Sought Out the Company


      During the dark, cold winter of 1951 i worked Wilshire Patrol, played a lot of golf, and sought out the company of lonely women for one-night stands.

Mario Di Girolamo









At the Depot


I watch the taxis pull up and idle
I can't claim title to a single memory
He offered me a key
'Cause opportunity don't knock
He has no tongue and she cannot talk
You're gonna shuffle when you walk
At the depot
Depot, Depot

Nightmare Alley


        The hobo stood up and edged around the fire cautiously. He watched the cartomancer warily. Nuts can blow their tops easy - and this one still held a can of hot coffee.
