Excerpt

Hello, sunken eyes, how's things in the distance.
As we pass the water fountain, a minor conference disbands.
I wedge myself into the phone booth to change clothes.
Hi, everybody, I hope we can be friends.
I promise I can hold my own in the shadows of the porch light.
I think we just passed the exit.
But it's not really a loss.
