is this a polemic or the satire?
"Do I contradict myself? Very well, then I contradict myself, I am large, I contain multitudes." ~Walt Whitman
Love it. Bet you the guy has a little girl who's missing her boa.
Well, some people in the Army ARE women. And yeah, mothers.
I love this, and all of the possible interpretations. It just shows how we tell stories to ourselves, based upon our own point of view! I was imagining that maybe his wife picked him up on his return from deployment, wearing that boa...or perhaps they have a son or daughter who serves...or it's simply a soldier with a powerful inner diva!
