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
