[Redacted] is not a photographer.
He is neither film-maker nor broker.
He does not own a parking garage
in the French Quarter.
[Redacted] neither resides
at the Plum Street address he provides
for deliveries nor does he dwell
in a renovation-in-progress on Willow.
He did not seek
drug and alcohol treatment far west
near the Redwoods. And he did not
feel California sand hot between his toes.
He has no permanent address legally
[Redacted] is homeless.
[Redacted] was not an Army Ranger
habitually he does not
carry a 9mm. [Redacted] can
neither neutralize a target
three fields afar nor
think to do such a thing.
