A mercenary. I hired a private eye
To check him out. He reported back: Top of his class in grade school,
First board in chess, winning at radio orienteering ,
A sadistic torturer of animals ever since he was a child, proficient circular breather,
Enrols in a classical high school, graduates with honours, private lessons
In Latin and Ancient Greek, a top snowboarder
(Videos on YouTube), a sodomite since seventeen.
I bent down silently, drawing in the sand, saying nothing.
I never paid for his (private eye’s) services.
He sent reminders. He sued. I was summoned by the
Court. I never acknowledged receiving the summons.
Officially, they can’t touch me.
