Somewhere there is a little man, still resembling a boy, who tries in spasmodic fits and starts, to insert himself into the world. With every failure, every setback, his attempts become more aggressive, more violent. In so doing, the reverberations of these assertions amplify his being and cause him to grow larger, heavier, meaner, more absurd. He increases in every way, from the volume of his voice to the volume of his body, and also in the volume of his hubris. The little man that once had the countenance and daily lightness of a boy, now stumbles forward as a hulking mound of clumsy flesh that all manner of mistakes cling to, like loose objects in a deep pocket glomming onto a malformed wad of chewing gum haphazardly jammed into that same pocket. And yet he continues, his movements progressively comic with each regressively heavy stride. Those who watch from a distance, are laughing.
