TEN MINUTES DRIVING AROUND PALO ALTO IN MY DAD’S OLD LEXUS LISTENING AS IF FOR THE FIRST TIME TO THE BAD PLUS ONE

  1. 1. Prehensile Dream or “Girl in jeans at Uni Ave Aporoaching High”

2. Or “Woman with Dog Wearing Backpack near Stanford Gate” (Anthem for the earnest)

3.Let our Garden Grow or “white knuckles green light”

4. The Empire Strikes Backward or i hope the truck does not hit the pedestrian

5. backhanded compliment >> chariots of fire

That actually took me more like 22 minutes but I pulled over to type
