The Strangeness of Niceties “It Takes Time.”

It started with a smile and a kind soothing manner…

I didn’t know what it was at first and when this awareness came raining down around me; I naturally thought that it must be a Con.

I thought about Hannibal Lecture when he said, “You can’t disect me with that dull tool Clarice.”

Then I thought about Bukowski when he said, “I’ve had so many knives stuck in me that when they hand me flowers, I can’t make out what they are… it takes time.”
