Contrast the cokehead with his opponent, drinker of tequila sunrise. Let them go round once or twice, another shot, another snort, another punch or two. Listen to the featherbed of your heart, notwithstanding any cheerfulness there falsely roomed and boarded. On the front burner, you're thinking victimize. You're thinking what'm I doing here at all.
