"That’s right, my crime name was Duck. Most people had something like, the Black Claw or the Destroyer. But Fuck, Fuck, Fuck…I was the Duck. In life, we each take our own paths. I often waddled across mine, unable to maintain a straight course. I had read somewhere that they’d been numerous occasions of ducks drowning themselves after they lost their mate. Wayward and suicidal. I’d often felt like that, after my wife left me."
