My Eternal Flame Burns Forever On Route 1
A mere 7 years ago today Joey Ramone died at the unspeakable age of 50. Why is that an unspeakable age? Ask me next year.
Since I didn't have much romance as a teenager, I told myself I was waiting for Joey Ramone to come to New Jersey and meet me and fall head over heels in love with me. I pretty much believed this right up to 7 years ago. He did eventually come to rest in New Jersey, in the cemetery on Route 1 in Linden, NJ, near the oil refinery flame towers. When I drive past I like to think those flames burn for my eternal crush.
