70 years, few tears, hairy ears. Watching quietly from every door frame. Catholic school backfired. Sin is in! Savior complex makes for many disappointments. Nobody cared, then they did. Why? Some cross-eyed kid, forgotten then found. Born in the desert, still thirsty. A sake mom, not soccer mom. Extremely responsible, secretly longed for spontaneity. No future, no past. Not lost. Almost a victim of my family The psychic said I'd be richer. Grumpy old soundman needs love, too. Painful nerd kid, happy nerd adult.
