This is no way for a former #1 city boy to act.

probably taking out her sexual frustration. women have a later sexual peak then men, and Paul probably hasn't been able to get natural boners in decades, what with his age and all that blow he used to do. she got that pussy rage.

Hello darkness, my old friend,
I've come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of beating.
