    "Why did you or I come to LA?" poetry to write, a poem to emerge
    better yet a story to tell a moment to flirt, stardom and or just for Sun
    from New York to Hollywood and the feelings simply right, to splurge
    one can’t come or go to any part of; if one was born as I am the one,
    my Son
    can’t say from the deep South, Mexico or Canada, I guess came to Shop
    I guess simply to Shop in LA!
