"Letter to the East Coast" as written by and John Vanderslice....
Being Joan Crawford at 21
Was easy
Living in new haven in 1925
Was simple and kind

like you and me at the start
It's right and bright at the top
But the rook's not to blame
For those who didn't have an endgame

The tenements of new haven, 2010,
Spare me that, my friend
Being Joan Crawford at the end,
Well that was hard

You and me at the start
It's simple and pure at the top
But the rook's not to blame
For those who didn't have an endgame

    General CommentNew Haven love and adoration here.

    Everything decays. Everything has a gilded age, and everything inevitably fades. Even the love that these two thought they had nailed down. There's no one to blame, really, it's just the way it is. The way it ends.

    Just like those big old houses on Howe Street.
