>"In the city" napowrimo #29


The Spring Break massacre

Happened over the oyster bar on Fifth

Welcome back Courtney Love

Even if you don’t like the idea

She says “Laura Bush has gay friends”

The Spring Break massacre

Staring at Sapphic Romance portraits

New York happy hours all round the clock

During a conversation with a human centipede

Mayor Bloomberg called out on education for the kids

The Spring Break massacre

You don’t say “A stray remark haunts Brown?”

They approve the big wind farm off Cape Cod

Just another evening out with friends

In “The city that never sleeps”
