“You can tell me a story if you want to, any story would do just fine. Any story from you, of you. Now is good as any other–our truth always arrives on time. I have no where to be, not enough to do, and ears only for listening. Then I’ll tell you my story, if you’re still around: how the papers called me a bad man, not a poor man; went and put in print I was out doing wrong and being no good. Now, go on, before we loose our light and I can’t see the story on your face.”
