That you must be chosen by someone to become who you are, it's a bit sad. That a thing like me dares to choose— everyone must have gotten him wrong, they gossip in the bars and the churches, the bartenders pouring whiskeys and the pastors pouring pity. They say in the game of poker, when a pro and a beginner meet, it is everyone else who loses. And whoever cashes out, laughs. Am I making sense to you, David? I've gotten this far from the fire I was chosen to burn in. I am just beginning to cool down.
