another evening in town
A place near the main drag all lit in neon, with shadow glass and five types of chrome. Someone planned for us all to be here although sushi had given way to some kind of Chinese French. I'd got a spare seat next to me for a late arrival, so she'd be near the middle instead of out on the edges.
We'd already played out quite a few hands during the afternoon, so the permanent nighttime of the bar gave excuses to pretend leave the real business by the door.
Place some clarinet around the bass backbeat. Click a few fingers near the candles.
Not dark enough for some though; wearing shades to hide their expressions.
