“Did you see that guy?”

“The one that’s always here?”

“Him. I talked to him today.”

“You were over there for, like, a minute.”

“But I talked to him and I saw him.”

“You saw him?”

“Don’t you see people?”

“I don’t know what you mean.”

The way their

pupiles dilate

the way their

eyebrows, angular, the

corners of their eyes

the tone of their voice

what leg they keep their

weight on, how long

their hair, the corners of their


how they

smile or frown or


a muted glance of disapproval could

just as easily be

a sign of intense interest

but this guy

“What about him?”

I don’t know.

He just was.
