Los Angeles leads the world in haze, mirrors and freeways.
Fame is a drug on prescription all the hours of the 24.
Atheists disguised as clowns perform at children’s parties.
Fortune tellers lay in wait for customers at Farmers’ Markets.
Repeatedly I am invited by strangers to a church by the name of Agape.
Agape translates from the Greek as… selfless, sacrificial, unconditional love, the highest of the four types of love in the Bible.
Oh well, still I have a ways to go before I reach Agape.
I take my guitar and my speculative script to the pharmacy all the hours of the 24.
With a slow burning heart
I drive to the pharmacy with my guitar,
All the hours of the 24.
