AN ANECDOTE            
                                          
 TODAY  IT RAINED, AND I WOULD GO OUTSIDE 
 I THOUGHT,  SO I  SMOKED A PIPE  AND GOT 
 DRESSED,  AND   OUTSIDE   THE  RAIN  HAD 
 TURNED  INTO SNOW  SO  THICK THAT IT WAS 
 AS DENSE  FOG ... AND THEN I WENT TO GET 
 THE MAIL, BUT  THERE WAS  A WOMAN AND WE 
 TALKED A LITTLE. NOW BECAUSE  I WAS HIGH 
 AND  IT WAS SNOWING SO  FUNNY AND  I HAD 
 AN  UMBRELLA AGAINST  THE SNOW, BUT SNOW 
 ALL OVER MY  FACE ANYWAY, AND I WONDERED 
        ABOUT MYSELF, AND MY LIFE
