[AFTER ALL OPERATIONS. NOTE FEET, LEGS, RIGHT LEG AND FOOT ANGLE
LEFT FOOT ANGLE AND BOTH LARGE TOES. THIS WAS IT AS FAR AS CASTS
AND FINAL OPERATIONS. THE REST WAS BRACES AND SPECIAL SHOES.
THEY NEVER EVER WERE EVER BETTER. STILL AT 63 THEY ARE 4 EVER
WITH PAIN. NORMAL SHOES WEAR OUT IN 6 WEEKS. I RATHER WEAR
JUST SOCKS. THE KNEE JOINTS ARE WORN OUT. ]
I WAS BORN CRIPPLED, DID NOT WALK TILL 5, WORE BRACES TILL 8 WHEN MY FATHER AND UNCLE WERE SHOT DEAD IN A MOB HIT  , SHOT IN THE FACE SO THEY COULD NOT HAVE OPEN CASKET FUNERALS.
The year was 1953, the month January, the day the 30th. I was born with great hearing, that is what the doc told my mother to cover the fact that from my knees to my toes the bones, cartilage and tendons were a mess. Club feet being the main diagnosis, but all the rest being part and portion to the whole. First came light surgery to the Achilles tendons, bone work, and a few other cuts [the butcher at work]. At 7 months more surgery and cast. 12 months surgery and casts [see pics above w feet still bent]. I would have difficulty walking till 5, wore 7 different style high top shoes fitted with braces till 8. I wet the bed till 8. My demeanor was shy and I was treated with disdain. My mother would fly off the handle due to a mental disability [ I inherited part and portion of that in the form of BiPolar Manic Depressive diagnosed by the VA in 2009 along with another mental disability of long term memory loss that may have been caused by physical injury at the ages of 5 through 11].
The only greatness of the above facts was my mind. Some how the pain and the heartache and my now forgotten relative’s love turned on something in my mind. It was the ability to read a book and do what was in it. I mean to read a book on a subject once and perform that subject. Say auto mechanics. I would read it, and with that book, do it. Read one on botany and specific ideas, treatments and phases, get to the top of that books teachings. Read about vintage watches then restore vintage to the tune of thousands. Read about Jewelry for one month then go to the top as a national acclaimed expert gold smith in the usa in one year. Anything you can ever imagine,. Though I was always a bright, smart kid, the reading retention was all i ever had. Yet phone numbers, addresses, names, physical items, connections, experiences, where i last laid don an item? FORGET IT!
Proof? Over 100 letters, awards, news papers, and more. This may have been due to the fact I hardly left the house, that I read and read and read. That from from years i read thousands of books. From 8 to 15 I slept in libraries and read at least 10,000 books. Back then Relatives had always brought me books. When they were “peter pan” they could see my dismay. When it was a book like James Jones, From Here to Eternity or J. D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye at 6 years of age? Well, i would tear through them in a week. Word got around that i was reading at college level by 7 years of age and the relatives simply dumped used books on my bed.I cared less if they were torn, missing covers or stained, just no pages missing please. This caused Jeanette [my mother] to snatch them up and dole out MY NEW WORLD TREASURES AS SHE SAW FIT!. Both I and they were but hostages of her whim and her world; a world she controlled with an iron fist. Two of us boys slept in one room, so i hoarded as many as i could under our mutual bed.
From birth to 8 years of age, my mother would often have running physical battles with my father, who as an active Racketeer /Mobster “officially” connected to a mafia family that operated in Harlem in the heroin rackets. I was named after him. My Mob name would have been “Joe-Pep” [ had i hypothetically succeeded him].
[JOE PEP RACKTEER -CENTER]
Joe-Pep was never home. Mother would often take out her anger on her kids …and me in particular due to the fact i was always at home, By my seventh year she began slamming my face into window sills, or hauling off and hitting me full force in the face on impulse before realizing that she had hurt me severely, then plead “don’t tell your father! don’t tell your father!”over and over.
It was like “HER EYES WERE ROBOTIC AND IN A SPLIT SECOND WOULD CHOOSE AND GRAB A PIPE, POLE. STEEL SPATULA OR ANY SUCH OBJECT LYING IN REACH AND LAND UPON ANY EXPOSED PART OF YOUR BODY, BACK, ARMS CHEST OR FACE.
I mean it was as it she was equipped with uncanny radar to seek flesh. She was liken to a drone of an apocalypse of battery. And if all normal fleshy areas were covered, the face became the target of choice. Fresh dual black eyes, and/or a broken nose or cheek bone would get two days of an icy reprieve before school was again mandatory.
Yes, some would say “that’s crazy”, the cops would haul her off.. well, it did not happen. My mother began to force me to “go out and play” in that dark dirty dangerous jungle. No amount of argument nor pleading that my stripes of steel would make me prey to the predators -whom abounded the jungle and plains. That my braces and my stripes that adorned my face so often were dead giveaways to the bullies who knew they could chase me down for i could not run a lick.
From 5 years through 8 the only reason i was not literally dead was that i did fight. I would grab the first person and never let go. When i went down he went with me and when i got pummeled i bit scratched chewed banged ripped him also.
Her apologies were always from the heart in measured tones and manors of vocal pleadings that she never intentionally meant to harm me….. I would constantly show up with severe bruising and when the 114th street precinct occasionally got a call from the school with my name, they took the call then simply ignored it. They hated my father. I mean hated him. The name provoked nothing but hatred.
Only when he was murdered did they then claim responsibility for the son….
So, like the African Plains, the wounds lead to further violence. The bullies saw the black eyes, busted nose’ and other injuries as, at the very least, signs of weakness. It made me prey for other sinners in the prides. In fact i could not ever successfully go and “:pickup” a pack of kool cigarettes anymore. I had to let them “rob”the 32 cents then steal them; cause i could not run.
Later on, after his death [think of the Sarangettii Plains of a NYC Housing Projects and that was my “OUTDOORS”. ] I DOUBLY hated the “streets” of NY where i had to fight, lie AND steal.
Stealing did not necessarily mean theft. There are many ways society steals from one another. And when in constant pain and loneliness, I chose my outdoors and trips by way of those books. I could not leave the house w/o fear. In fact, I used to prey to God. All i ever want is a safe room. That is it. Just a room. That is it Lord. For the rest of my life. With my books. I SWEAR THIS ON ALL WHOM I LOVE TODAY…..
I WAS BUT 8, HAD JUST HAD MY BRACES REMOVED I AWOKE TO EXCITEMENT BECAUSE MY FIRST DAY OF NO BRACES. THOSE CLUMSY EMBLEMS THAT HAD MADE ME BUT PREY TO BE HUNTED RATHER THAN A HUNTER AMONG THE STREETS… THEY WERE BUT ZEBRA STRIPES TO THE LIONS WHOM I FEARED SO MUCH I NEVER WANTED TO “HGO OUT AND PLAY”
THEY WERE NOW ABSENT AND I WAS TO WEAR MY SUIT, TIE, FEDORA, AND ITALIAN POINTED TOE FENCE CLIMBERS TO GREET FATHER THAT DAY. THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE … NO LONGER LOOKING THE CRIPPLE… ONLY TO DISCOVER HE WAS GONE. 4 EVER….
P LEFT HOME THAT NIGHT DESPERATELY TRYING TO FIND ST JOSEPHS AND THEIR CASKETS. ALL NIGHT I ROAMED AS COPS BY THE DOZENS TRAVERSED THE STREETS TRYING TO FIND ME –BELIEVING THE MOB HAD KIDNAPPED ME ALSO. THAT MORNING I SHOWED UP AT THE SCHOOL TO FIND TWENTY POLICE CARS ALL WAITING DESPERATELY PRAYING I WOULD SHOW.
MY FATHER’S BODY BEING REMOVED AFTER MOB HIT 1961
HE & MY BESTEST UNCLE WERE SHOT POINT BLANK IN FACE NO OPEN CASKET
I WAS TOLD AN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT BUT OVERHEARD “NO OPEN CASKET”
DESPERATELY I SEARCHED FOR ST JOSEPHS AND HIS CASKET THAT NIGHT
TILL THE BRIGHT LIGHT PEEKED THE FILTH OF THE CITY
TO SCHOOL I WENT THINKING OF PEACE ONLY TO GREET 20 CARS OF COPS
THOUGHTS OF THE MOB AND KIDNAPPING AND MURDER
MOTHER DID SHOW SHE CARED WITH TWO BLACKEN EYES A BROKEN NOSE + CHEEK
FACE BRITTLE N’BLACK N’GREY N’RED N’SWOLLEN 4 6 WEEKS
THE NEXT THING I KNEW WE WERE IN A HOUSING PROJECTS AND THE BEATINGS GOT WORSE. TIRED OF MY FACE BEING SLAMMED INTO WINDOW SILLS AND BEING BEATEN WITH EVERY THING FROM SPATULAS TO VACUUM CLEANER PIPES AT HOME AND FISTS ON THE STREETS I BEGAN TO RUN AWAY. I QUIT SCHOOL AND JOURNIED THE STREETS. LIBRARIES WERE MY EDUCATION AND MY SLEEPING QUARTERS WHERE I SLEPT FROM 8 YEARS OLD TO NEAR 18 YEARS OLD ACROSS THE NATION. I HITCHHIKED FROM STATE TO STATE. AND WHEN I WAS NOT PICKED UP AND THROWN INTO A DETENTION CENTER I WAS ON THE ROAD SOME WHERE LEARNING. I LEARNED THE STREETS AND THE PEOPLE . WHILE I NEVER BECAME A THIEF OR CRIMINAL IN THE SENSE OF A THIEF OR CRIMINAL,I SURVIVED THROUGH WITS RATHER THAN FISTS. FROM PICKING TOMATOES, COTTON AND BEANS, TO PECAN GROVES AND UNLOADING TRUCKS TO DOING WHAT EVER I COULD, I STILL WOUND UP ON BOTH SIDES OF THE LAW. YET DOING RIGHT ALWAYS WAS THE MOTIVATING FACTOR. YES, I DID GET INTO TROUBLE, BUT IT WAS ALWAYS THE STUPID KIND OF TROUBLE, I CALLED IT DESPERATE TROUBLES. LIKE WHAT WOULD OCCUR WITH THAT STUPID TOOL BOX AND THE STUPID DECISION TO PLEA NO CONTEST TO WHAT WAS A STUPID NON CRIME. OR THE TIME OUTSIDE OF THE BELOW ARREST AND PLEA, I had HAD several stupid arrests IN MY LIFE AFTER REACHING ADULT AGE. NONE WERE SERIOUS CRIMES, OR I SHOULD SAY, NONE WERE JUDGED SERIOUS ACCEPT ONE. WHILE THAT ONE STARTED SERIOUS. IT WAS PURPOSEFULLY
MADE SERIOUS WITH NOTHING BEING SERIOUS.

NANA LOU LIVED TO BE 3 MONTHS SHY OF 103
SHE OUT LIVED HER ONLY DAUGHTER, 4 HUSBANDS
SHE HAD LOTS CONTACTS BUT WAS RESPONSIBLE
FOR KNOWINGLY EXPOSING HER ONLY CHILD AND
2 GRAND CHILDREN TO A PERVERT HUSBAND DOMINICK
THIS SAME DOMINICK WOULD BE RESPONSIBLE FOR
PROVIDING THE TWO HIT MEN WITH ACCESS INTO
THE RESTAURANT TO KILL HER SON IN LAW AND HIS BROTHER
MOTHER IS MAD, SHE SAYS I MUST FIGHT BACK— BUT HOW??? I ASKED… WISHING FATHER WAS HERE TO SHOW ME….THE SCHOOL DOES NOT SEE THAT I AM NOT A VIRUS CAUSING ALL TO GET SICK. RATHER, I AM SIMPLY KIND OF SHY. I SPENT MOST OF MY LIFE IN BOOKS. NEVER GOING OUT. I WAS BEAT UP A LOT. MY HANDICAP HAS MADE ME SLIGHTLY QUIET THOUGH EAGER TO SHOW MY KNOWLEDGE. WHICH OFFENDS MANY WHO NEVER READ LET ALONE READ THE BOOKS I DID. THIS PLACES ME OPPOSITE TO JUST ABOUT ALL IN THE CLASS. BY NOW I HAD READ THE CLASSICS. ANCIENT HISTORY. PHILOSOPHY. SCIENCE. IN FACT, I HAD ALREADY BEGUN TO HANG OUT AT A LOCAL SCIENCE PROCUREMENT HOUSE/BUSINESS THAT SOLD TO SCHOOLS, COLLEGES, MUSEUMS IN LONG ISLAND CITY. FROM ANIMALS AND ANIMAL EMBRYOS IN FORMALDEHYDE EXOTIC REPTILES, I WAS LIKE 4 GRADES AHEAD. AND SOME AT COLLEGE LEVEL. I LOVED READING AND LEARNING.
BUT THAT WAS IT. SOCIAL SKILLS WERE WAY BEYOND MY ABILITIES. I DID NOT KNOW HOW TO STAT A CONVERSATION. IF I DID, IT WAS TO SAY SOMETHING ABOUT HEMINGWAY! OR NERO OR CAESAR…
MY CLASS IS FULL —- THEY ALL HATE ME, I MEAN HATE ME.. THE ENTIRE CLASS! WHY? BECAUSE THE BULLIES ALWAYS HAVE THEIR WAY. THEY USUALLY ARE NOT TO BRIGHT. AND WHEN THEY SEE A SMALLER PERSON, WITH SOME DISABILITY AND A LACK OF COMMUNICATION SKILLS AND ONLY EDUCATION SKILLS THAT MAY BE USELESS, WELL, THEY NOW CAN USE THEIR SKILLS.
IT WAS LIKE A VIRUS… NO ONE KNEW WHY? OR WHAT WAS CAUSING WHAT EVER IT WAS? THEY SAW ME BUT THEY DID NOT KNOW ME…. THEY DID NOT KNOW IF IT WAS ME OR HOW IF THERE WAS A CURE FOR THIS SITUATION. BUT ONE THING WAS FOR SURE, IT WAS SHORTER THAN ANYONE IN THE CLASS. WORE OLD, WORN OUT, OUT OF DATE CLOTHING. IT LIMPED IN FUNNY, HIGH TOPPED, WEIRD OLD TIMEY TYPE SHOES. IT WAS A FUNNY ITALIAN WHITE WITH DARK CIRCLES UNDER THE EYES AND OFTEN CAME TO CLASS WITH LOTS OF BRUISES ?
IT SIMPLY DID NOT FIT IN. IT WAS NOT LATINO, WHITE NOR BLACK, IN THE CLASS THERE WERE NO ITALIANS. 65% WERE NEGRO. 20% WERE LATINO THE REST WHITE.
SO I LIE AND I LIE AND I LIE AND I JUST SKIP CLASSES LEST I HAVE TO FIGHT CAUSE I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO FIGHT….SO I MUST HIDE IN THE DAY LEST THE TRUANT OFFICERS FIND ME OR EVEN SEE ME..
LIBRARIES, HALLWAYS AND EMPTY APARTMENTS.
I COULD WALK INTO A LIBRARY AT 4:30 TO 5:30 PM. DEPENDING ON CLOSING. GO INTO BATH ROOM. WAIT UNTIL THEY CLOSED. READ UNTIL 3:AM. SLEEP TO 4:30 TO 5:30 AM. I HAD AN AUTOMATED BODY CLOCK [STILL TODAY!]. NO MATTER HOW TIRED, I WOULD THEN GO BACK INTO BATHROOM. WAIT TILL THEY OPENED. THEN SIMPLY WALK OUT. NEVER, IN 10 YEARS, WAS I EVER “CAUGHT”. NO ONE EVER CHECKED. THERE WAS NEVER EVER AN ALARM SYSTEM. NO ONE EVEN LOOKED OR BELIEVED ANYONE WOULD ROB, BURGLE OR STEAL FROM A LIBRARY. I NEVER TOOK, BORROWED OR STOLE ANYTHING.
MOVIE THEATERS AND MUSEUMS.
MOVIE THEATERS WERE MY SECOND PLACE OF REFUGE, OFTEN VIEWING THE SAME FEATURE OR DOUBLE FEATURE 3 OR 4 TIMES! I LEARNED HOW TO ENTER THEATERS FROM 8 TO 13 SUPER EASY DEPENDING ON SHOW AND TIME OF DAY. IF IT WAS COLD OUT AND I REQUIRED SLEEP AND WARMTH, THERE WAS SEVERAL WAYS. SO DEPENDING ON THE NEED, TEMPERATURE AND SHOWING I HAD UP TO 20 WAYS TO GAIN ENTRANCE. A LIST WILL BE PART OF THE EPILOGUE ,
THESE WERE MY PLACES OF REFUGE FROM 8 YEARS OF AGE THROUGH 17 YEARS OF AGE.
OIL HEAT/EMPTY APARTMENTS:
A- I WOULD HAVE A FEW CHARGES AS JUVENILE BASED ON THIS TYPE OF SURVIVAL SKILL. EARLY ON IN NYC, CHICAGO, PHILLY, AND OTHER COLD CITIES, I WOULD GO WHERE LARGE BUILDING DEVELOPMENTS WERE. USUALLY LOW COST HOUSING, PROJECTS. FIND MAIN BUILDING WITH OIL BURNER FEEDING ALL BUILDINGS ON BLOCK, CHIMNEY USUALLY CENTER BUILDING RAN UP STAIR WELL. WALL WOULD BE WARM TO HOT. CLIMB STAIRS TO ROOF DOOR. LANDING WALL HOT. SLEEP BUT TURN LIKE ROTISSERIE. TO WARM PARTS OF BODY ALL NIGHT. DIFFICULT BUT BETTER THAN FREEZING.
B- EMPTY APARTMENTS. WELFARE APARTMENT HOUSING OR HOUSING PROJECT
WHEN EVICTION OR MOVING OR TRANSFER OCCURRED, THE EMPTY APARTMENT WAS USUALLY NOT CLEANED UP OR RE-HABITAT FOR 2 WEEKS. IN DEEP COLD WINTER I WOULD ALWAYS CHECK TO SEE IF ONE WERE AVAILABLE. IF SO, GO TO ROOF AND CLIMB REVERSE TO FIRE ESCAPE. HEAT WAS ALWAYS ON IN WINTER, IT WAS STEAM. NO OUT SIDE SHUT OFF. YOU TURNED RADIATOR ON OR OFF EACH ROOM. I STAYED WARM MAYBE 40 TIMES FOR MAYBE 80 DAYS WHEN TEMPS WERE IN BELOW ZERO. ALWAYS KEPT CLEAN. ONLY STAYED FOR THE STORM PERIOD. ONLY 3 TIMES WAS I ROUSTED. TWICE BY PERSONAL WHO LET ME STAY TWO DAYS TILL TEMPS WENT TO 20 DEGREES. ONCE BY POLICE WHO LOCKED ME UP IN SPOTFORD DETENTION CENTER FOR BURGLARY FOR A WEEK. [WHICH WAS HOW LONG THE BELOW ZERO WEATHER WAS] . I WAS RELEASED TO THE SAME TWO COPS WHO DROVE ME TO RAVENSWOOD QUEENS AND LET ME GO! NO COURT. NO TURN OVER TO STATE FOR BEING RUNAWAY JUVENILE. SO, COPS WERE ACTUALLY COOL…
ALLS WELL UNTIL: MR TRUANT OFFICER COMES TO THE HOUSE….
NOW I KNOW I HAVE TO DEFEND MYSELF AT HOME, ON THE STREETS & IN THE SCHOOL
3 MONTHS OF 5TH GRADE AND I HAVE HAD IT. SO ONE DAY I COME UP WITH A PLAN… I BEGIN THROWING CHAIRS. JUST THROWING THEM UNTIL EVERY ONE HAS CLEARED THE CLASS. THIS SHOULD GET SOMEONES ATTENTION. THEY STORM THE CLASS AND PULL ME OUT
THE ULTIMATE SITUATION OCCURS: I AM BROUGHT BEFORE MY FIRST JUVENILE COURT JUSTICE.
“SON, YOU ARE VIOLATION OF THE LAW. NOT GOING TO SCHOOL. CAUSING TROUBLE IN SCHOOL. CAUSING TROUBLE AT HOME, CAUSING FIGHTS IN SCHOOL! WHY ARE YOU PICKING FIGHTS…..???”
“SIR, I AM NOT…”
“THIS IS A COURT OF LAW! DO NOT TELL ME WHAT YOU ARE NOT DOING! I HAVE THE REPORTS HERE, RIGHT HERE! YOU HAVE A HISTORY! RUNNING AWAY FROM HOME, 7 TIMES. WHAT ABOUT THIS. YOU RAN AWAY, HAD THE ENTIRE POLICE FORCE WORRIED. 25 POLICE CARS. OVER 40 POLICE OFFICERS? DID YOU NOT!…”
“SIR I DID NOT…”
“DID I ASK YOU TO SAY ANYTHING? YOU WILL BE IN SCHOOL TOMORROW, YOU WILL DO HOMEWORK. YOU WILL APOLOGIZE TO MR. EVENS, YOUR TRUANT OFFICER. YOUR CLASS. YOU WILL APOLOGIZE TO YOUR MOTHER.
HERE SHE IS TRYING TO MAKE A HOME FOR YOU YOUR TWO BROTHERS AND SISTER AND YOU ARE CAUSING HER PAIN AND SORROW. IF YOU COME INTO MY COURT ROOM ONE MORE TIME I WILL PUT YOU IN SPOTFORD DETENTION CENTER FOR TWO WEEKS. THEN LETS SEE HOW YOU BEHAVE…”
THUS MY “RECORD” HAD BEGUN. YOU CAN READ THE FACTS. FOR THESE ARE THE FACTS THAT ARE THE BEGINNING OD MY “RECORD”
NOTE: 2 STINTS IN REFORM SCHOOL WOULD OCCUR THAT LED ME TO STEER CLEAR OF NY AS A TEEN. READ HOUSE OF CARS TO CURSE OF ALPHONSO. THESE WERE NOT DO TO BEING A THIEF. ROBBING PEOPLE, VIOLENT CRIME. ONE WAS FOR TRYING GETTING INTO AN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT AT 14 TRYING TO LEAVE NY. I HAD NOT BEEN TO SCHOOL AND LIVING T HOME. ANOTHER WAS DUE TO THE FACT THE JUDGE STATED THAT I HAD TO LIVE AT HOME. I REFUSED TO LIVE AT HOME A LEFT NY FOR 8 MONTHS, UPON RETURNING THEY SENT ME TO WARWICK STATE TRAINING SCHOOL, I ESCAPED TWICE. THEY CAUGHT ME AND SENT ME BACK 8 MONTHS.
FROM 8 TO 18 WHEN I ENLISTED IN USAF, I SPENT ALL MY TIME LIVING ON THE STREETS NATION WIDE. OF THAT TIME 16 MONTHS WERE SPENT IN REFORM SCHOOL. THERE WERE NO VIOLENT CRIMES. I WAS ARRESTED FOR RUNNING AWAY, TRYING TO FEED MY SELF OR SHELTERING MY SELF. I WORKED AT OVER 100 JOBS ACROSS AMERICA, UNLOADING TRUCKS, PICKING TOMATOES. COTTON, PECAN GROVES, DAIRY, MECHANICS, TRUCKING, WELDING, YOU NAME IT I WORKED IT. I WAS P/U FOR MINOR EVENTS ONLY. NOTHING THAT KEPT ME FROM JOINING THE ARMED FORCES [USAF] WHICH I RECEIVED AN HONORABLE DISCHARGE.
MY FEET AND LEGS WERE IN PERPETUAL PAIN DAY AND NIGHT..ESPECIALLY IN THE COLD. I TRIED GOING BACK, APOLOGIZING TO ALL — BUT ALL THAT DID WAS MAKE THINGS WORSE. I WOULD LOVE TO SAY SOMETHING I WAS DOING WAS WRONG. WELL, MAYBE LATER, BUT FOR NOW, I DID NOT HAVE TO DO ANYTHING TO BE DOING SOMETHING WRONG, GET IT? HELL, I STILL WAS COMING OUT OF PUBERTY. I HAD NOT STOLEN STUFF, DRANK BOOZE, DID DRUGS, LIED, CHEATED, STOLE. I MEAN I WAS AT THE BEGINNING OF LIFE……
SO I LISTENED TO THE JUDGE… LIKE THE REAL PLAINS OF AFRICA, WHEN THE TOP LION [NOW KING] HAS WON THE RIGHT TO LEAD THE PRIDE BY DEFEATING ALL CONTENDERS. THIS DOES NOT MEAN THE CONTENDERS WILL NOT ATTEMPT TO DEFEAT THE KING AGAIN! AND THE THE KING IS FAR FROM OUT OF THE FIGHT! HE AND THE PRIDE LIVES WITH THIS KNOWLEDGE UNTIL HE IS DEFEATED.
ON THE STREETS THERE IS A SIMILAR CODE. THERE ARE PRIDES, THERE ARE CONTENDERS, AND MANY CONTENDERS ATTACK OTHERS TO GAIN CONTROL OVER PRIDES OR TO SHOW PRIDES THEY ARE POWERFUL BEFORE THEY EVER CHALLENGE THE PRIDE OR START THEIR OWN. SO, IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO ATTACK A KING. THE MERE ATTACK OF A PRIDE-LESS PERSONA IS SUFFICIENT TO GAIN POWER.
WHEN I RETURNED HOME AND TO SCHOOL, I APOLOGIZED TO EVERYONE. I WAS MADE TO APOLOGIZE TO THE ENTIRE CLASS!! THUS THE PRETENDERS AND THOSE WANT-TO-BE-PERSONAS WERE NOW THRICE EMBOLDEN. EVEN THE [NO OFFENSE] OVERWEIGHT TRUANT OFFICER WHO HAD TO SHOE HORN HIMSELF INTO HIS BEETLE BEFORE GIVING CHASE TO SUSPECTED TRUANTS WAS APOLOGIZED TO.
IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF DAYS BEFORE I ARRIVED AT AT SCHOOL WITH BLACK EYES AND BROKEN NOSE; THEN A SLICED EAR FROM A BEAT DOWN; THEN A SEVERE SCUFF TO MY RIGHT KNEE CAP, DEEP ENOUGH TO DRAW RUNNING BLOOD.
AS THEY SAY, THAT WAS THAT.
I HAD TO LEARN HOW TO FIGHT MY BATTLES AND BUILD A NAME THAT WOULD COVER 4 HOUSING PROJECTS AND 7 LOCALS WITHIN 3 BURROUGHS OF NYC.
‘CAUSE EVEN THOUGH THE BRACES ARE
GONE THE DAMAGE REMAINS…..
BEING 4 FOOT 10 TO 5 FOOT AND LACKING THE ABILITY TO OUT RUN A SLOTH MEANT DEVELOPING A NEW TRADITION OF DEFEATING EVIL. LIKE THE GREEN HORNET OR SOME OTHER CRIME FIGHTER WITH SPECIAL POWERS, I HAD TO INVENT MY OWN.
GETTING BEAT UP BECAME THE ORDER OF THE DAY OR NIGHT, ALL I HAD TO DO WAS SHOW UP… ANYWHERE .. ANY TIME…AND BAM! A WELL LAID PUNCH WOULD SET ME FREE FROM EARTHS GRAVITY TO LAND UPON MY BACKSIDE BEFORE A KED’S SNEAKERED FOOT WOULD GLANCE MY BROW SETTING MY HEAD IN ROTATION FOR A ROUND OF ENGLISH STYLE FOOT BALL. LIFTED AGAIN FROM EARTHS GRAVITY BY A WOLF’S PACK OF ENERGY…
BAM.. ONE NIGHT I FINALLY REALIZED THE ANSWER,,,WHY IT WAS SO I SIMPLE I DID NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT… GRAVITY, THAT WAS IT, GRAVITY, FOR CHRIST’S SAKE GRAVITY WAS MY BEST PARTNER. IT CAME AS AN AUTOMATIC HUMAN NEED FOR SURVIVAL MIXED WITH SHEER TERROR COMBINED WITH.. THAT’S RIGHT…… GRAVITY….
GRAVITY ACCIDENTALLY COMBINED WITH TERROR! SIMPLE, FAST AND GUARANTEED TO DO JUSTICE EVERY SINGLE TIME!
ALL I HAD TO DO IS REMEMBER TO
THAT IS IT..
THE FIRST PERSON THAT I COULD GRAB AND TAKE DOWN WITH ME TO THE GROUND WOULD BE THE ANSWER TO ALL MY PROBLEMS..
NO RUNNING AWAY. NO THROWING UP THE “DUKES” LIKE ON ALL THEM WESTERNS”
NO JUMPING INTO A KARATE STANCE AND CONTORTING YOUR BODY WITH WEIRD SOUNDS AND KICKS,,,
WHY EXPEND ALL THAT ENERGY BEFORE THE FIRST BLOW!
GRAB THE SON OF A BITCH
PULL THE SON OF A BITCH
THEN PUSH THE OF A BITCH
LAND ON TOP OF THE SUN OF A BITCH
CHEW THE SHIT OUT OF THE SUN OF A BITCH
KICK THE SON OF A BITCH WITH YOUR KNEES/
GRAB HIM BY THE EARS AND NEVER LET GO
IF THEY YTRY AND PULL YOU OFF
WRAP YOUR LEGS AROUND HIM AND BITE HIS
EARS THREATEN TO BITE HIS NOSE OFF
GO NUTS GO CRAZY MAKE THE GUY BEG
AND THEN DO NOT LET GO.
GRAB HIS HEAD AND BEAT IT INTO THE GROUND
I WILL GRAB HIM
I WILL PULL HIM TOWARDS ME
THEN PUSH HIM AS I FOLLOW HIM THROUGH
—- AND BE SURE I LAND ON TOP OF HIM. THEN AS THE OTHERS BEGAN TO PUNCH AND KICK I WILL PUNCH, KICK, BITE, PULL HAIR AND KNEE HIM WHILE YELLING WHAT I AM DOING WITH THE LOUDEST VOCALS OF ANY CRAZED PERSON EVER… UNTIL THE GUY BELOW BEGAN SCREAMING FOR HELP, FOR RELIEF TO THE OTHERS TO STOP, PLEASE STOP….
I DID NOT WANT TO KNOW HOW TO FIGHT. I DID NOT WANT TO FIGHT. BUT IT WAS NOT TOO LONG BEFORE I HAD A NAME ACROSS THE BOROUGH OF NY AND THE MAIN AREAS OF QUEENS NY.
FROM ASTORIA -INCLUDING 21ST AND 21ST AVE, NEXT TO THE CORNER OF CON EDISON PLANT AND EAST RIVER ALL THE WAY TO ASTORIA PARK, WHERE THERE WERE “WELFARE APARTMENTS [CURRENTLY RENOVATED AND RENTED FOR TOP NOTCH PRICES] AND THE *ASTORIA HOUSES HOUSING PROJECTS,

EVERY ONE LEAVES ME ALONE …FORGETS ON PURPOSE BUT THAT TRUANT OFFICER IN THAT BEETLE UP AND DOWN THOSE STREETS– KEENLY THROUGH THOSE BLACK RIMMED GLASSES A MEATY SANDWICH IN A MEATY HAND DRIPPING MEATY COLORED DROPPINGS
ALL OVER HIS ALREADY STAINED WITH MEATY DRIPPINGS JACKET
