Alone 12/7/81


There I was in San Francisco
wondering what to do
Where did all my friends go?
Gosh, I felt so blue
I sat in my hotel room
sort of in a fog
on the horizon loomed
treatment for a dog: 
First my ex
left me perplexed
she wouldn't take the trouble
but that didn't burst the bubble.
Then my bosom buddy's
promises got muddy
Still, all in all
I hadn't yet hit the wall.
That came in the night
my turtledove put fright
in the solemn  halls
where my love now crawls,
lost and mind-blown
a disoriented, vulnerable soul 
heading for home............alone.
