"In Alabama the Tuscaloosa"

The always incredible Robert Lopez has new stories in The Brooklyn Rail:
Someone approached me on the street. It was broad daylight, appalling.

Questions were put to me as if I might know something. The first had to do with my birthplace. I told them I couldn’t remember, that I’ve been told different things by different people.

Then they asked me if I was interested in making some extra money. I told them stories need to be verified. I told them I would look into it and get back to them. I said I needed more time.

    "The one thing I know is this – Mother did not give birth to me.

    The other thing I know is it is no real calamity."

    He's too fucking good.
