Read by Glen Hallstrom aka Smokestack Jones (On Facebook)

” She had the lips that Satan dreamed of in his long fall to hell.  That’s why I followed her down that nameless, narrow alley in `the city care forgot.’

I’d been riding all day, coming up out of Texas on my painted whore of a Harley, and an impulse sent me angling off the Vieux Carre exit and into the French Quarter.  I’d been to New Orleans many times and never found anything there I couldn’t live without, but my life had been governed by whims of late and I saw no reason to stop paying attention to them now.
