It spends its time consuming astringent seas of unsweetened and buttery coffee, and discerning coyly querulous eels from snickering rills and scrolls of uncurling cigarettes’ sulfurous and smoldering smirks. For a time, he wished to be Randy Newman’s tarred and ivoried shadow, though some years later, a coppery flue exposed from the shoal-scrubbed throat of Dylan Thomas. Now, more often than not, he simply wishes to be himself.
