Big Easy, Bad Rap (Part One)

Bourbon Street, January 2013.

"If you wanna go to hell, you should take that trip to the Sodom and Gomorrah of the Mississip, New Orleans!" - A Streetcar Named Marge,  The Simpsons.

It's confession time, Bigmouthers. Despite being married for less than a year, I must admit to an horrendous wrongdoing. For the last two months I've been engaged in a torrid love affair. She is by turn young, beautiful, old, ungainly, willing and prohibitive. She is clear to the universes sky and choking fog. She is an embrace and a kick to the face. She is the city of New Orleans.
