Beautiful wordplay, your imagery is amazing.
California is also the largest state for agricultural big industry, and trust me- that is the dark side of anything.
In truth, if you look hard enough, any place is horrible. In a beautiful chain of islands outside of Haiwii, Asian girls are kept as virtual slaves in garment factories, making clothing for American stores. OSHA visits once a year, and it's not as though safety standards are inforced. Baltimore, a supposedly glorious city, is filled to the brim with literally starving homeless.
The tourists just don't know where to look, and of course no one would say anything- it's human nature to look away.
You get kudos for looking in the right direction, and for voicing it so eloquently.
