I really can’t take my eyes off of him. That must be the mark of forceps on his head. No. Or was he punched too often or too well. A boxer. They do heal. He must have been an accident of birth. A doctor, like one of these, juvenile still. Drunk maybe. And his mother in labor for 88 hours. Had to be. A boy born with a pull and a tug. The soft part of his head squeezed by instruments and inexperience, and that dent won’t bounce back.
