Under an Embargo As a child, Robert collected mass cards from the rear of the church. Making boats, he’d set them afloat, then assault them with stones. Pictures of Saints, with haloes surrounding such hallowed heads. They’d take on water and go down; no longer saved by Saint Christopher. He’d been banished to bogey-land, and kept at arms length by the church. As Timon of Athens, he was to undergo an embargo, and would soon be forgotten.
