I had an unconventional childhood.

They say it's easy to blame mother,

They say it's easy to blame mother, but in truth

They say it's easy to blame mother, but in truth I haven't learned a lesson I couldn't unlearn.

let me digress

when I was a kid

when I was a kid 5 or 6 years old

I would be left home with a man named Harold

I would be left home with a man named Harold He was 6'4" 280lbs. A notorious biker.

and he did this peculiar thing:

and he did this peculiar thing: I was coloring

and he did this peculiar thing: I was coloring and he took my small crayon held hand

and he did this peculiar thing: I was coloring and he took my small crayon held hand and made me color in his nose

I did it hesitantly.

I did it hesitantly. Slowly filling in his oft broken nose

I did it hesitantly. Slowly filling in his oft broken nose with my blues and my black.

when i finished

when i finished, he took my head in hands far too large

when i finished, he took my head in hands far too large and filled my nose in with every red in the box

when I told that story as the now father of an auburn child

when I told that story as the now father of an auburn child my mother said,

when I told that story as the now father of an auburn child my mother said, "oh, Harold?"

when I told that story as the now father of an auburn child my mother said, "oh, Harold?" "he went to prison not long after that"

"he used to love

"he used to love to snort ketamine and color."
