John Domini on St. Augustine

3 May

John Domini has a great piece in the spring issue of BLIP. It’s titled “Old Town St. Augustine, Millennial New Year,” and here’s an excerpt to whet your appetite:

The worship grows more feverish when
it’s not your money, when the 20s come
from Mom. Burn holy in your pocket.
Then, other bars, other bones. Painted nails
along the rails. Flip-flops’ crusted straps,
the shell and coral fixed as if in amber.
Oh high-sung Margaritaville, bring out
your dead!

This one hits close to home because, well, it hits close to home. St. Augustine isn’t so far from here.
