I gave up all, went into the wildlands.
I was last seen on the peninsula.
I was caught in a storm, cast adrift.
I and my ships waited in a cave.
I became lost in the clouds.
I disappeared during a descent.
There is some evidence my disappearance was voluntary.
I left hints.
I was depressed, walked out with just 30 dollars.
I bought a book.
I got on a train.
I went down into a sewage canal.
I was presumed to have drowned, but I may have survived.
Several women came forth saying they suspected they might be me.
I was found at last, abandoned, partially submerged, listing heavily.
They tested me and found incontrovertible proof:
no one is related to me.
