Waits and the Moon

i was driving home from shawnee tonight when i saw a full red moon coming up behind the treeline. at the same time this was happening, i was repeating a line from tom waits’ gun street girl as it played over the car stereo:
he bought a second hand nova from a cuban chinese, dyed his hair in the bathroom of a texaco… with a pawn shop radio a quarter past 4, he left waukegan at the slammin’ of the door, left waukegan at the slammin’ of the door, i said john, john he’s long gone, gone to indiana aint never comin’ home…
thanks tom.
