The Coast of Chicago
1990

"By the time we hit downtown and passed Buckingham Fountain with its spraying, multicolored plumes of light, Deejo would be rhapsodic. One night, standing up in the backseat and extending his arms toward the skyscraper we called God's House because of its glowing blue dome--a blue the romantic, lonely shade of runway lights--Deejo blurted out, 'I dig beauty!'"

-- from "Blight"
