reading father boyle talk about his gang members, i feel so much kinship. I’ve got these stories too
and it’s awkward. I dont’ look like i do. I don’t have tatoos on my face or anywhere. I look extremely acceptable
But i know that i have stories that freak people out
I can pass. I can make my hair shiny sometimes, and i have a vocabulary.
I passed passing and now make people uncomfortable the other direction. people say “I appreciate you being so on top of things” which is another way of saying “can’t you slow down and back off?”
I know there is a shadowy figure that people see that they think I am.
I can pass as someone worth feeding. but it’s tenuous.
because it takes a lot of effort
