L.A. Summer Evening

I had dinner tonight with a (non-kinky) friend at a little Thai-Chinese place that I like on Vermont. I was driving home through Hollywood going down Sunset and had one of those great L.A. moments. The sun had just gone down and the palm trees and buildings up ahead were in semi-silhouette and on the radio was some track from that new Paul Simon album. Sometimes this city can be a royal pain in the ass but at moments like this it’s beautiful and feels so full of promise, at least until the moment passes. Then I went by a pharmacy and noticed a guy out beside the building taking a pee on the wall.
