    It Was 1986

    In Texas, I dated a Viet Nam vet and POW for about 5 months. He was 17 years older than me. He introduced me John Prine's music. It was about the only good thing he introduced me to. He listened to Prine's albums non-stop sometimes for weeks at a time. He was really messed up...
