did you see me? i bought a newspaper to distract myself and you were still there. maybe you were waiting for someone. i can't remember where i was going or coming from. this black night with shallow reach. water flows along the streets, floods thicken, we are all drenched. what will you see when you look everyday? rivers of people push from day to night. looks slick on rain soaked glows. splashes everywhere. back and forth. effervescent lights. activity. a few times i walked home from work, it took hours, but i didn't care. so much noise and dirt and as if the city was a mountain and my home the top.
