STRANGER

I AM A STRANGER HERE ON THIS PLANET EARTH

A man sits beside me with 20 white tees spread out   He is

writing slogans across the front of each   At first I think he is

maker  the name for artists in my sohipithurts hood   It slowly

dawns that he is

 

I PLAN ON LEAVING IN ONE WEEK  GIVE ME ONE WEEK GUYS!

 

He shouts to people on the street    Where was I?    It slowly dawns

that he is raving mad  I begin to worry that he may blacken my eye   Now he

is on the other side of the window looking in at me   I am at a cool cafe called

Crafted    YES   this moment has been precisely crafted for me  by a hand unseen

 

The very same hand that placed me oh so indelicately in this picture  crown first

SMART PERCEPTIVE GENIUS!  he shouts  Except that I am not  I do not have

all of the 6,299 answers  Only ONE   as it grows exceedingly difficult to not worry

86.7% of us suffer from anxiety  while the rest are investing in selfie-sticks for

Christmas

 

If just one person knows your name  inside+out   If just one person will comfort

you when the night weasels come    Then you are in the top percentile

JUST ONE MORE WEEK AND I’LL HEAD OUT!   a rheumy cough then

a cackle  OMG! he is doing the jerk    You are in the top percentile of those most

likely to succeed

 

Now he crosses himself multiple times + does a Michael Jackson moonwalk

THAT’S HOW ARCHANGELS ARE BORN  THEY SUFFER  THEY ARE

BRAVE   Be BRAVE    As for me  I think he thinks that I am insane  sidelong glances

then  I AM A HOLY HIT MAN!   Heart bangs against ribcage

 

Please don’t bludgeon me risen Michael   I have so much living to do   One of my pet

projects is to    I WILL RE-INSERT JOY INTO THIS WORLD!    I run for my life

through the Art&Design district  trailing clouds of what I might have been
