“Who and what is a Reservoir Man?”
Michael first discovers the men at a huge reservoir on the queens and Brooklyn border at age sixteen. He spent many hours talking to a number of them while sitting on a bench near the reservoir. He realized that most of these men either lived with their parents or with their wives, living a secret life, seeking other individuals at the reservoir. Even at a young age Michael came to the conclusion that these men where living a lie, not dealing with whom and what they are. When these men, the Reservoir Men, start to become aggressive with Michael, he realizes one of their greatest threats to him is their corruption. Their corruption, he realizes swiftly, is a product of their lack of truth, the evasion of their reality. They deal in lies, deceptions, games, and worse, they seek to take others into their game too for their own personal, yet insatiable, fulfillment. Michael knew if they could only come closer to who they are, their wants and needs, their acceptance of themselves, they would find their way out. The Reservoir Men are not only people looking for a sexual outlet but also a representation of the many other people Michael would meet in life that may lead him into a dangerous game too. He also realizes it is not his job to show them the door to their freedom but instead to leave and continue the quest for his own. The Reservoir Man wants us all, we cannot stop to talk to him, we must only understand him and move quickly to our next place in life. We only hope that these lost souls, someday too, see the light.
