Sometimes inner peace is a punk rock bar in Anaheim.
Dedicated to all the homies I’ve had the pleasure to meet, watch perform, and perform in front of at The Doll Hut in Anaheim, CA. Keep crushin’ it. The world needs what you have to offer.

There are fewer places I’d rather be
than seated in the yellowed light
of a back porch of a punk rock bar
in a forgotten corner of Anaheim,
listening to the wails and shrieks,
poetic madness, Galaga machines,
feelin’ and preachin’ to this meetin’
of The Church of the Absurd,
this congregation of lost souls fillin’,
shakin’ and quakin’, rockin’ and rollin’
these walls of The Sanctum of Outcasts
held together by one thousand stickers,
the hopes and dreams of a thousand bands,
and the dyin’ words of smilin’ men.
