You go down to the pickup station, craving warmth and beauty; You settle
for less than fascination -- a few drinks later you're not so choosy.
And the closing lights strip off the shadows on this strange new flesh
you've found -- Clutching the night to you like a fig leaf you hurry to
the blackness and the blankets to lay down an impression and your
loneliness. -- Joni Mitchell
