When I got out I couldn’t get over the smell of the air. It smells different inside… Like burning, or choking, or stale breath, morning breath, you know? I went to the diner in town, where all the guys go when they are released. I was wearing my jacket from ’96. I can’t believe they keep all that stuff, whatever you’re wearing when they bring you in. It’s too big on me now.
