I saw them.
They didn’t see me but, I saw them. I saw them in all their glory.
My stomach dropped to the ground like a body thrown from a moving car. I wanted to rip out my hair, all in one big tug, and then I wanted to rip out all of their hair. And their skin, and eyes.
I couldn’t look away.
It was as if I thought if I kept looking at them, staring, on the corner of the street, that the picture would change and everything would suddenly click back to normal. They would mould into different people and I wouldn’t have a voice screaming inside my head, pumping boiling blood to my ears.
But the picture never changed. It was them, I could see them. And I would never un-see them.
