We’re sitting on the edge of a fountain,
Laughing, smiling, happy as can be.
The loner sits down. We keep talking.
He lights a cigarette. We keep giggling.
He moves closer. We look at each other.
He rubs his dirty arm against me. We jump up.
The two of us start to walk faster and faster.
As we pick up speed, we turn around.
He is following us closely!
We run into a store, he waits outside.
Watching, watching, watching.
There we are, hiding, hiding, hiding in fear.

This piece is about a true experience. I was in Madrid, Spain and a man was following a friend and I.
