men and women…some criminally insane… others with different agendas… paced up and down the psych ward hallway at Bellevue.

this Dominican was my roommate…missing an arm and a leg…jumped in front of a 6 train heading for the Bronx.

shrugged a shoulder, you got just as good a chance as I do…

i wasn’t gonna ruin his day.
