You've heard he waslegally drunk and then some,
that he'd been up on DUI chargesat least five times previouslyand lost his license once.
Strange how his lifebursts with more and more informationwhile you struggle to rememberif Donna's eyes were brown or green.
He's the youngest of three,mediocre at school,can't hold down a job.And Donna was...what was Donna exactly?
You see him in the dock,lace rumpled, lips twittering,nose snorting, fingers tapping.You try to picture Donnabut the image has a hard time coming.
As always,when it comes to details,it's the living,not the loving,who prevail.
