When I was a child, age 10,, Jodorowsky left me for hours on end at his apartment in Geneva.
Eventually I found his Red Book.
He kept it locked in a cabinet in his study.
First I found the key inside his glass worry bird, which I learned twisted open.
Then I tried every lock in the house.
Perhaps he wanted me to find it.
One day I saw him go into his study and when he exited he gave me a look that told me he knew.
But he said nothing, so I felt encouraged in my actions.
I recall that he dedicated it to Saint Leslie Ann of Geddes, and he had a drawing of her in front.
And I recall the first sentence: "They are a fraud."
I was compelled to copy it; thus, my notes:
