Chapter 1: Overture
Prologue: Destiny is Calling
The dead catfish had been rotting in the sink for two days now. He still didn’t have the nerve to pick it up and toss it in the trash. He ignored it, in the superhuman way one could ignore fish stench. Not that he had been extremely so fucking busy, in the normal-person way you could tell visiting friends, “I had been, like, soooo busy I totally forgot about that dead fish ha ha ha.” All he did in the past few days was lie on the couch and read the bunch of poems he had written, changing a word, a line, or an entire stanza.
