Mishka Shubaly vs. the road
The road is a dangerous mistress. One moment she's gilding her path, offering kisses laden with joy and good fortune. The next, she's slashed your tires, stolen the radio and called all your exs to tell them you've got the clap.
Mishka Shubaly's fickle love affair with the road was born out of his life-partnership with his guitar. He left New York City to tour in support of his forthcoming album, How To Make A Bad Situation Worse, a mix of country-rock, high alcohol intake and grit. While stalled in traffic in the Bible Belt, Shubaly put his feelings for his asphalt courtesan into words in the spirit of this week’s Alibi Haiku Contest.
