I confess this isn't my very favorite song ever but I like it a lot and it's the one I had an idea for.  I originally imagined this as a series of hearts representing all the kinds of love but after reading through the lyrics again I came up with the idea of a late night cafe.



(Sorry the image isn't great but my camera's battery died shortly afterward)

Going from left to right, top to bottom the panels represent lines from the song:
1. When the only sound on the empty street
is the heavy tread of the heavy feet
that belong to a lonesome cop
I open shop
2.The moon so long has been gazing down . . .
my smile becomes a smirk
3. appetizing young love for sale (that's today's specials)
4.who's prepared to pay the price (there's a roll of money on the table)
5.let the poets pipe of love
6.the thrill of love
7.old love (it's symbolic - you know a flame about to sputter out)
8.new love (that first glance . . . )
9.if you want to buy my wares follow me and climb the stairs

This was fun but not quite what I hoped.  I really wanted to illustrate "every love but true love" but couldn't come up with anything that really worked.  I was inspired by Eric Drooker who did "Illuminated Poems" an amazing volume that illustrates some of Allen Ginsberg's poems. 

I enjoyed doing this and looking at all the other cool projects.  Now maybe I can tackle some of my other favorites like "Our Hearts will beat as One", "What I'm looking for", "Under African Skies", "Satisfied Mind". . .
