_December
 2001_
  I
 became
 what
 I
 am
 today
 at
 the
 age
 of
 twelve,
 on
 a
 frigid
 overcast
 day
 in
 the
  winter
 of
 1975.
 I
 remember
 the
 precise
 moment,
 crouching
 behind
 a
 crumbling
  mud
 wall,
 peeking
 into
 the
 alley
 near
 the
 frozen
 creek.
 That
 was
 a
 long
 time
 ago,
  but
 it's
 wrong
 what
 they
 say
 about
 the
 past,
 I've
 learned,
 about
 how
 you
 can
 bury
  it.
 Because
 the
 past
 claws
 its
 way
 out.
 Looking
 back
 now,
 I
 realize
 I
 have
 been
  peeking
 into
 that
 deserted
 alley
 for
 the
 last
 twenty-­‐six
 years.
 
 
  One
 day
 last
 summer,
 my
 friend
 Rahim
 Khan
 called
 from
 Pakistan.
 He
  asked
 me
 to
 come
 see
 him.
 Standing
 in
 the
 kitchen
 with
 the
 receiver
 to
 my
 ear,
 I
  knew
 it
 wasn't
 just
 Rahim
 Khan
 on
 the
 line.
 It
 was
 my
 past
 of
 unatoned**
 sins.
  After
 I
 hung
 up,
 I
 went
 for
 a
 walk
 along
 Spreckels
 Lake
 on
 the
 northern
 edge
 of
  Golden
 Gate
 Park.
 The
 early-­‐afternoon
 sun
 sparkled
 on
 the
 water
 where
 dozens
  of
 miniature
 boats
 sailed,
 propelled
 by
 a
 crisp
 breeze.
 Then
 I
 glanced
 up
 and
 saw
