…Paint it Black


As Mick sang and Keith picked and so the world goes on… I saw this motolady hefting this Honda vee twin through the midday traffic along Roosevelt. Black upon black with mirrored shades and a cyclops eyelash up front. She looked intent.

“I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes”

From the seminal ‘Stones album Aftermath in ’66.
