Vonnegut In The Morning



It was dark on the veranda, so I couldn’t see the Commodore’s face very well. The darkness, and the brandy, and the slow guitar let him start telling the truth about himself without feeling much pain.

“Let’s give the Senator from Arizona a rest.” he said. “Everybody knows who he is. The question is: Who am I?”


~From the short story "The Hyannis Port Story" by Kurt Vonnegut

Wonder if this works?

Love the accompanying shot. Feels much lighter than the quote.
