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
