Kwyerboi (2006)

I was in the Washington National Cathedral boys’ choir under the direction of Paul Callaway for 4 years. I was one of the boys. The National Cathedral and I did not agree with one another. But that’s OK because they did not agree with me either. When they were preparing to toss me out on my ass because I was such an annoying kid – annoying in a bad way – we were moving to Puerto Rico anyway, so we could all pretend that everything was great when I left. On the upside, the education I got through 6th grade at St. Albans enabled me to concentrate almost exclusively on smoking pot after I left. In fact it carried me all the way through graduate school. You go, St. Albans! Side note: even though I was in 4th grade when it occurred, I was sure that I belonged at Woodstock. Kwyerboi is as much about things that were happening outside as in.
