A line from Jacques Brel

The seminal event in a
sequence of events is
a pious man seeing his
father doing the bread roll

dance at the St. Mary's
Caring Soup Kitchen. Now
a new intimate connection
begins to form, one that’s

in color, a crime documentary
that's full of both subtext &
subtitles. Others might distract
themselves with a magazine or

maybe listening to some music.
The pious man longs for the rush
of celebrity status — a desire
passed down from his parents.
