Scenes from Thunder Bay, ON

frozen grey dawn, greyhound bus depot.... 'blow at high dough' on the radio

followed by the Doors - 'people are strange'

and then another song, maybe steve miller, 'you can only drive down main street so many times'

got a whole bunch of new songs forming, soon soon

moving fast under brilliant star skies, death hurtles by inches away

slept through kenora, thought of rmrm

winnipeg was amazing, banff was chilled, skipped regina, vancouver was the best of all

left sleeping bag, useless clothes, bag of cinnamon sticks in a frozen-slop city bus shelter on Garry Street, in the Peg... dead weight
