“Sully’s tumor grew to the size of a grapefruit before it turned malignant. His father slipped a disc trying to steal cable TV and went into traction the same day as Sully’s operation. For three weeks they shared a recovery room. Medicated Sully lay stupid like a man in love. His father hung spread eagle, stretched out like leather to be tanned, and gave blow by blow accounts of his navy day heists and genius telephone installer scams.”

(Joe Pernice’s “Sully’s Tumor” from Two Blind Pigeons, 2001)
