There are many places to hide.

current song: Texas Never Whispers

THIS, is my favourite.

I had no ride home....
From Work.

I joined Del, with Lain.

Dollar night at THE HOLE IN THE WALL.

I haven't been there since it changed hands--but kept the sign.


Looking around, before my first beer.......
Felt, left off--
Fumbling in my black and whites....

Work clothes and lines around my eyes.

Trying to hold my cigarette right.

Dense Crowd....
Can't move.

feeling.....tired and bitten by every beautiful college miscreant
who bumped and brushed against me and my bag....



Lain was getting pissed off by the bartender....
while I turned to Del and said:
You know, this is the first time I've been in a bar
where I didn't know anyone but the people I came with--
in a VERY long time.

I used to come here, 8 years ago.
*glances over the 22 something crowd*

I knew people then........

*tugs hard*


I said.

I looked over to see who Lain was getting out done by--
And laughed.


Dominic was taking the piss out of him for not tipping enough.
MY Dominic.
Dominic Aielo......

Known him for ten years.
Eight years???

*bounce bounce*

::sock Del in the shoulder::


HE grins at me.

"I know the bartender!!!!"

Dom, Lovejoys and The Black Cat.........

I'm not too old.

Austin still has my magik, wherever I go.

All is not lost.

*laughs at herself*

And we sat down, and met the best Folk....

Paul and Bobby.......
New stories about Austin....
New York....

Coming back.

I laid out my theories--

Picking out the stories from the Folks
who come to incubate...
and move on.


Bobby has been back several times....
Paul has been here two years.

(I think...they were together...but I couldn't really tell.)

I just spouted and spouted.

What it's FOR.

Del beaming at me, Lain playing pool.......

Bobby and Paul clinking my plastic glass...
over and over.
Bobby knocking it on the table with me.

I was square enough to get Paul's e-mail....
and phone number.

(again, in Austin...hard to draw black lines...*laughs*)

Why end tonight....
(Because GINGER has to be at work at 10:15 AM...)

And last call at the HOLE IN THE WALL...was called.
By an old Friend.
(Dom leaned down and whispered in my ear....Drink up, Dear.)


I felt old when I got there....I felt Old School...when I left.

The Drag of UT...........
I never go there anymore....
I did tonight.

For a ride HOME.

I got a ride home.................
And a nice dose of "you still belong here".

Old Woman By the River.........
Can still float.


Still Float.

We are not together, alas. He's a Ladies' Man, though if I could have first pick of the men I know, it would be Paul. He is a walking biking treasure chest of Good Person.

And I'm very glad he suggested we ask to sit at your table. It was quite refreshing conversation! And I don't always get tables that sopped with beer. Fluke!
