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
