that tornado. Killed every one of em.

we played together, me and Roy
when we were kids. And I had a strychnine

instead. And Roy said, You ate that potato?
I said, Yah, about 30 minutes ago.
He said, well you should be dead.
And I said, Maybe I am.
And I was in heaven and the Lord

I said, Lord, I'm sorry your head fell off.
He said, I don't care. I'll send you back to Earth
and you'll do my will not Man's will.
So I rented a room, me and Joey did.
And I took off because Jackie was
cussin' at me. Back to California.
Here, look at this letter she sent me,
hope you are well and doing
OK. This is the second card I'm
mailing to you. Today is a beautiful
day complete with robins chirping-
Petie would have enjoyed it.
I have all the windows open and the
newspapers flew all over the kitchen.
Well I guess I'll have a cup of coffee
with Bruno. Remember when the 3 of
us used to drink coffee together?
Then he took the letter away.
just an innkeeper for the Lord,
that's all I am."
