"...took out her barrettes...and her hair spilled out like root beer."
The first time I heard Tom Waits...was while driving my TV remote...blind through all the upteen channels on my digital box...one long bored afternoon.
Austin CL was replaying a performance by Tom because of an extreme outpouring from hungry viewers.
He was standing by some gas pumps...smoking a cigarette...looking like some hip-cat from the fifties. He recited a story about a young girls wanderlust for the unknown.
Lost gem:--> "Burma Shave"...is paintbrush poetry. Like knife-packin' fireflies at a summer evening glow-off!
