amy winehouse 1983-2011

My story, "A Wild Night and a New Road," which will appear in the forthcoming anthology Blue Christmas, begins: "She drives home with her fake RayBans on and the radio blasting. Power 96! Amy Winehouse or someone like that." Amy Winehouse has been found dead. Terrible news. 

I don't ever wanna drink again
I just, ooh, I just need a friend
I'm not gonna spend ten weeks
Have everyone think I'm on the mend

And it's not just my pride
It's just 'til these tears have dried
