Today’s Music: Iggy Pop – The Passenger
*Zildjian Clevis whips two shiny silver spoons from his pockets, one in each hand. He moves them both to his right hand, and slowly at first but gaining speed, clacks, plunks and drums them together in a rising crescendo of madness, then-
*El Guapo strides to the stage, clove cigarette in hand, travel brochures overflowing his pockets, ostrich feather rising from his porkpie hat
He takes a long drag on the cigarette, the scent of cloves and fresh cut glass permeating the coffee house. He nods to Zildjian*
Gleams in the sun in the driveway.
Everything in its appointed place.
The GPS as a beacon.
To accompany us on our way.
The road unrolls before us.
Quiet companionship interrupted by a question:
“Did you lock the front door?”
We turn around…
