Wilshire & Fig

 

the Omni-Hilton is under new management
again with its elegant moderne
cousin to the May Co. building
at Fairfax

southwest corner a ruddy fraud
of marble-coated claptrap

opposite that the gaudy makeover
next to something faceless
forgotten already along the lines of
the rest of the city

the plum duff catches the light
like the fine hairs around the nates
of a newswoman
