Hemholtz Watson longs to be able to write something that touches the reader. but in the society that he is surrounded by makes it impossible. even when what he wanted, strived for, was the emotion, the intensity, when John reads him Romeo and Juliet, he laughs at the dedication and love Romeo has for Juliet. It seems quite ironic that he luaghs at the thing that he longs for.

As a little boy, John Savage tries deperately to be accepted in the tribe that he grew up in.
