you see the clouds
as cream. ebullient mounds
of baby’s breath but

I
only see the crows cutting through.

Chicago was a right good scream. The drive (or ride, rather) went by quicker than I remembered. Schubas was real dark. I liked that. And the whole show felt like I was speeding towards a cliff or canyon or something. And all night the sound of steely insomniacs in packs roaming the world on wheels. I woke up in a heap on the floor clutching a pillow. A success, I suppose. 

 
We looked like a crime scene of sorts. Dead bodies adorning the room.  On the way home we stopped at the gas station. There was a soda machine where you could add flavors like cherry, vanilla and one more I don’t remember. I made a vanilla coke and wondered why they stopped making vanilla coke. Wasn’t missy in those commercials? I was next to 1,2 stepping by the end of it all.
 
Home. Safe.

My name is UH-DEE-YUH…

Just received some MAJOR love from Bob Boilen and Ann Powers on All songs considered!!!

But my name is pronounced UH-DEE-YUH. Kinda like the shoe! 

“NPR Music’s Ann Powers joins the show to talk about Adia Victoria, a young, mysterious Nashville singer she’s recently become enamored with. Her first single, “Stuck In The South,” was released a few weeks ago and has sent ripples through the Nashville music scene.”
