We had to find it, that Skull Of The Grunge-Witch Prince. It burned in our heads like a savage lighthouse on bleak, foggy nights.
We set out at hot and stinky sundown, looking for some trace of the skull. Black and toxic tar pit swamps wrapped around around our feet, sizzling sneaker soles. Our troop, rag-tag and unpolished, hammered onward, breathing caustic and charred smoke, looking hard, digging even harder through muck. Our beady eyes turned on us at every chance. Our women dared us to turn back…
Worn, dog-eared Bukowskis were swapped over backseats for Wolverine trade paperbacks, which were handed off for Crowleys and LaVeys — for research, y'know? Eventually our veins went purple, our skin took on the role of haggard, broken chalk, our eyes glassy and gone.
Did we find the skull in LA? No. We dragged our asses in the rot and lost a few men — 3 homicides, 2 suicides; and way too many blisters to count. Did we find it in Hot-lanta? Of course not, the drugs pulled us into the real-hard-void, and we succumbed, straight fucked. It wasn't in the bayou of course, but the South felt strong and brutal, like the skull had hung hard there before, ripping it. We were just about to dig deep into the Mississippi vines, when the van busted its gut and its nut. It blew it / We blew it / Fuck it. End of the line?
We never found it, I guess; that diabolical and radiant diamond skull… but these were the songs of our travel. Some Majestic Magikal Voyage. We grew closer in the those many weeks, packed into our caravan, like undead priests or cannibalistic carnivores on the unruly hunt in the blackout-burnouts. You may not realize what this was all about, and it doesn't even matter. Enjoy our present — the soundtrack to our after-hours fire and the bleak dawn of the fruitless expedition. Or was it?
