Reasons for InsanityThe first time I held a knife, I was twelve years old.
To this day, I'm not quite sure what possessed me to do it. If my memory serves me correctly- which, nowadays, I honestly can't be sure it does- I didn't acquire the Millennium Ring from my father until around a year later. But somehow, when I felt the cold, metal object with the wooden handle, everything about it felt right. The way it so easily fit in my grasp as my fingers curled around it, it was as though the handle was custom made for me.

for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
