Down to the Dirt

by Joel Thomas Hynes

Hugely funny to begin with as Keith and his friends relate one escapade after another but as events become more serious so the story becomes much darker. This is a searing account of a teenager fighting fate and his own nature.

Embarrassed and pissed off as I am, I decides not to say one more word. That gets 'em every time. That's the best way to deal with the cops. Just shut the fuck up. You're better off. Plus it drives 'em off the head. They can't stand it. Believe me, there's nothing they loves more than playin' head games and puttin' words in your mouth and lettin' you dig yourself into a hole. It's the RCMP for fuck sakes. They got nothing better to do.
