1 A kid used to drink clear water spilling from a drainage ditch into a creek & that kid was probably me, the water probably parasitic, though as far as one can remember no one got sick & no one led the kid to it, no one made him, which is not to say free will (which is always to say Free Willy) but not out of the question was, is, a remembered taste. There is disputing it. There is deposing him. You can say spring but can't say part of speech. This was the water part. The fire part came later.
