The Gods Are Crazy
Lenny launched his usual tirade on campus to a statue he addressed as Dionysus, whom he blamed for his wrongful deeds, migraine headaches and lack of shoes.
His voice carried across the quad, accompanied with maniacal gestures, yelling “Carpe Diem!”
Two police officers dragged Lenny away, his head sagging.
He pulled away from the officers, grabbed my arm, his eyes piercing into mine, “Son, you’re Adonis. Don’t let them push you around.”
I never saw Lenny again after that, and I missed him. What mattered was that his actions were genuine. He wanted to care. After all, he did anoint me Adonis.
