"It Must Have Been Around 1992 When A Rare Bird Built Its Nest In The Park Across The Street From My Parent's House And The Hunter A Few Houses Down Wanted To Slay It And The Boys Named Chris And Colin, Whom I Disliked, Wanted To Steal Its Eggs To Hatch Under Their Pillows, And The Beautiful Girl Named Mandy Wanted To Pluck Its Feathers For Her Hair, And I Wanted To Be It, The Bird, Impermanent And Candy-Colored And Wanted By All."
