(Painted on a wall across Turk Street from the Dalt Hotel)

The Tenderloin

Nights hooded slayer arrives, shadows reaching and stretching to cloak the city

A small discarded street Opening scene

Alcove displaying the focused space of fallen, rushed humanity on the midway of wonders, voluntary traps and empty hands
Stolen Bicycle moving fast

Asphalt dreamers and cocoon people watching the bottle caps spies taking notes on atrocities
Shatter the night

The Voice of reason has a hollow echo in the TL, Noises that spawn a hundred misdemeanors
In the hotel around the corner

Blind man sings to shower head wearing scuba gear, broken toe nails to rapt attention
A command performance tonight only,

Asian lady with roadmaps leading out of town imprinted on her face lets residents read the legend
No talking on the third floor
take the Elevator

Nut cases holding conversations with patient walls in the corridor, chamber door of desolation closes
Visiting hours over

Broken dolls sleep walking in the wretched decay
Revelry Just beginning

— Raina
