    She was Karl's fiance, but I was sleeping with him. She didn't care.
    Why either of us wanted anything to do with that little hairy man still eludes me.
    But still, it was natural we would be drawn to one another, She was so tall and bronze, I was fair and sixteen.
    She invited me to her tree house in the Redwoods.
    Mendocino is lovely in the winter months.

    "Is this the beginning of the end?" I asked.
    "No," He said. "It's the middle."

    The man who didn’t exist sat in a chair with a bag of pistachio nuts he was cracking open.

    “You’ll be taking your lessons this way from now on. The things I teach you will only be remembered consciously in bits and snatches from your dreams.”

    “So I won’t be hurt anymore?” Michael asked.

    “No.” The man replied, “you’ll still be hurt.”

    The first time I saw him on my monitor, I wasn't right in my mind.
    Head queer, I liked to call it.
    I didn't see his face, his back was to the camera. I could only see the man interviewing him.
    But the story he told, was just what I needed to hear.

    We had recently suffered a reversal of fortune. I wouldn't know it for a few more years, but most of my mental shortcomings were due to bad medicine.
    And maybe a little local bad Juju.

    We ran low on money. Pressed to reduce our expenditures, I was forced to cut our cable television.
    I kept the internet. I was alone and crazy for twelve hours at a clip. Too tired to do anything, but too anxious to sleep.
    No matter how much weed I smoked.

    I don't know what it was about him that drew me in. He was too old for me.
    WAY too old. Not in a sexy weathered way.
    Too grey and wrinkled for a fresh-faced eighteen-year-old.
    Maybe it was the way the cigarette drooped between his lips as he spoke. Maybe the way he called a pair of anything a deuce.
    The first time we spoke, I asked him if our Uhaul would be safe for the night.
    "Give the night doorman a deuce," he told me. "He'll watch it for you."
    Even with the drooping cigarette, he was well spoken. He sounded educated for a doorman.
    He seemed street-wise and sophisticated. Maybe that was it.
    Maybe he just seemed interesting.
    Maybe it was because he was sinking.

    My communist roommates and I found a local bar to walk to right away.
    Our third night in Manhatten, we were surprised and delighted to run into him again.
    He told us his name was Neil.
    I seemed to date a lot of men with that name back then.

    I was young and felt my full power.
    It never took me long to learn a man's story. His secrets.
