Robert Mitchum’s torso was shaped like a top.
And when he was young, it was easy to explain
what his torso looked like if someone asked you.
“It looks like a top.” When he was young, everyone
played with tops. Even little boys with small chests.

But by the time Robert Mitchum died. nobody played
with tops. But people no longer asked about his
chest. They would ask questions like: “How did
Robert Mitchum die?” Which is harder to answer.
Everyone dies in their own peculiar way.
