He was always a bit of a disappointment.
All I left behind
should come as no surprise

to me since I fell
through the black hole of your eyes.

Only little things
inconsequential I could say
of all I left behind with you along the lost highway.

Silver earrings in Wichita,
beaded moccasins in Tonopah

but I had you so
I just let them go.

The flannel shirt I wore
to keep me from the cold
when we drove from Boston all the way to Buffalo.

The leather boots I bought
so many miles ago

I took them off to follow you
into the Ohio.

"Performance is all I cared about as a child and it's all I care about now. I don't go to see a play to see a great play. I go to see a great interpretation.
Everything is interpretation."

-Diana Vreeland

"The police said that while performing at Plaid, (Courtney Love) hit an audience member, identified by officials as Gregory Burgett, 23, of Kentucky, with a microphone stand. The owner of the nightclub said Mr. Burgett was cut on the brow and received three staples at Cabrini Medical Center."

"Several people who were at the Plaid concert said they had noticed nothing amiss. 'I was in the V.I.P. area, and Boy George was wearing a very big hat, and I couldn't see over him,' one person said."
