Little Red Wagon
When I was very young, in Compton, I looked for cheap thrills. I'd take my wagon to the hills, and fly as fast as I could. The hills were the sections of sidewalk totally broken, and cracked and never repaired from the 1931 earthquake. The upward thrust had created hills in the concrete and they pretty much were left that way for twenty or more years. The concrete was all chipping apart, and you'd bounce along like heck on those flying as fast as you could. .
When Thelonious Monk had an album photo of himself with a little blue wagon, because he once lived near Compton when I was a kid, I thought I understood what he meant. ("Thelonious Monk", I would be reminded by my sister wasn't who I was talking about. "Charles Mingus" she would correct me when I recounted that story to Frank.)
