    "Life is a tangerine," said the wise man.
    "You have to peel it to get to the good part."
    I had quit my job and sold my 1967 Mustang
    To travel to Kathmandu.
    The men in Kathmandu were not wise enough,
    So I walked with a Sherpa named Kermit
    East to Lhotse Face
    To the wisest man.
    "You're full of shit," I told him.
    I returned to the World,
    but the only Mustang I could afford
    was a 1992 LX convertible with a crumpled
    Left fender.
    At least it was red.

    This is really important...it's one of those things that's not like "oh shi- totally profound" but still makes you...look around. I dunno. It's important to me.

    Thanks.
    I haven't figured out whether the wise man was right yet. I think it's all about the fender.
