And a tin can of worms -- This is the story I have to tell -- I am in blood -- The freak show was a serious business to me -- To talk in beauty when it came to the cowboy who was my dad was an enormous contradiction -- In the summer of 1963, my younger brother and I stole a corvette -- I first car I ever stole -- We were there -- I had grown scattered like a scarecrow -- There were no roads on the way to Sa's Hogan -- Traveling west is like following the sun -- It was a pilgrimage -- The dust storm blew through Texas -- The cosmic microwave background (CMB) is a perverse radio emission appearing to have a truly diffuse origin -- We took dancer to the gravel pits -- In 1963, the desert blacktop to Los Angeles unfolded like a quivering, silver apparition -- In the beginning it was not at all what i expected -- We rode sticks and brooms for horses -- I should have known -- We had always known our father was a coyote -- That night you and daddy buried that dead baby in the sugarcane -- Geronimo's moon lit the desert -- I had been shot
