Five snapshots from the day pot “took” (1984)

  1. At home, I hallucinated that Suzie was a limited edition Elizabeth Taylor Denny’s children’s menu (complete with punchouts and maze game)
  2. Completely unclear how I made it to work (as busboy at a steakhouse)
  3. Foolishly attempted to pick up 40-lb tray of dirty dishes; I ask to go home (“very, very sick”)
  4. Grandma picks me up. She has a nose bleed. She talks compulsively as she drives northbound into southbound US 19 traffic.
  5. My eyes roll back in my head. Grandma prays aloud as she careens off the road. This is a true story
