A man once named Lycius--who crawled out of a car wreck, certain his life was over. When he returned home he was distant, sober and alone for the first time.

Living in the middle of the cornfields, he awoke each morning certain he would journey to the train tracks--arms spread like wings, waiting for the locomotive to carry him further than he ever imagined...

Time spent learning of life and wishing to live his own, he smoked a cigarette and walked part way home.
