Death and the mariachi
"They didn't like my music. I'm ending it all ..."
This was the thought bubble ad-libbed by my new friend Crane as we saw this mariachi peering over the edge at Redondo Beach, as if contemplating sending himself and his fiddle over.
I thought it was kind of funny.
At the time, we were enjoying delicious beers and fried food at Naja's Place.
Crane and his old friend Richard Derrick are regular contributing musicians to Poetry Scores, the arts org I cofounded that translated poetry into other media.
