JOHN




Yesterday was St.Patricks day, the whole world wore green,and i wore red. Back in




december,christmas time, the world wore red and i wore green.The kids on the street




thought i was the grinch. A little kid shouted," Mama, look theres the grinch".The




woman looked up and said," that aint the grinch, its lousy old Stoker."Well, that




defines it all. All my life ive felt, ummm, a little out of place.Even now i feel,




that an asteroid is going to fall onto the earth,any moment now




right onto my head.Ummm, now that I said it, i dont feel it anymore...










(sighing)




I met Vera at a party back in 09', tough days they were, perhaps the toughest.




Life was a test and the test was high schoool...

Kathy was something of a paradox. She was from an illustrious family. Everyone knew her




but she was the dumbest person id ever known. I dont even remember why i went to that




party...

There is a party going on

In those days, i was in the state of mourning,umm, i think fussing and obsessing would



be more appropriate.I'd just gotten over with Kay, with whom i'd had my first fragment



of a relationship...

Not Exactly!




It was either a misconception or a smokescreen or maybe neither.Was it a misconception?



Was it a smokescreen? Nah, it was neither, There are somethings I like to believe,and



this is probably one of them
