inessential by Brent Simmons


Mariners took 3 of 4 games from the White Sox. The series before they took 3 of 4 from the Yankees. Something good might perhaps be starting to think about considering happening... song of the day: Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds (I'll Love You) Till the End of the World.

It was a miracle I even got out of Longwood alive
This town full of men with big mouths and no guts
I mean if you can just picture it --
the whole third floor of the hotel gutted by the blast.
And the street below showered in shards of broken glass.
And all the drunks pouring out of the dance hall
staring up at the smoke and the flames
And the blind pencil-seller waving his stick
shouting for his dog that lay dead on the side of the road.

And me -- if you can believe this -- at the wheel of the car
Closing my eyes and actually praying
Not to God above, but to you, sayin'--
Help me girl, help me girl,
I'll love you till the end of the world,
With your eyes black as coal and your long dark curls...
