Dedicated to Dr. Danny DeSole
First words
Once I was young and had so much more orientation and could talk with nervous intelligence about everything and with clarity and with as much literary preambling as this; in other words this is the work of an unselfconfident man, at the same time of an egomaniac, naturally, facetious won't do - just to start at the beginning and let the truth seep out, that what I'll do -.
Ain't never nobody loved me like I love myself, cept my mother and she's dead.
