In 1945 
A Jewish baby was born 
In East Van Nuys 
Her lonely eyes 
Filled with the poetry born 
Of suicide 

Haldol and ECT 
She met her end in a trailer 
Near the sea 
200 Klonapines 
Just hoping that she could find 
Some sweet relief 

Old Cerwin Vegas 
Maruchan and diesel fumes 
Stacks of containers 
The shipyards in the afternoon 
Desert winds blowing 
Out to Catalina soon 
Long Beach to Vernon 
Mexicans and hazy noons 

You are my baby 
You’re my only baby
