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
