Getting Out Of The Neon Rain

The precinct of divine shopping. Where we purchase guitars and watermelons. A strip-mall just off to one side of the beaten path; where I bought some broad daylight and the squawking of harpies. We travel there via the ever-jingling continuum of insignificance. You take highway three past the trembling singularity. It's just two blocks west of the last resort; going to absurd lengths not to arrive.
