Spoon liked dogs, women, brandy and the novels of Somerset Maugham.
that’s just the way he was.
and some people did call him different.
he thought of himself
that’s just the way it was for Spoon.
he was different, all right.
when he got in the car and drove away...
when he never once
thought of coming back.
