part ii : anybody home?
My face is faced away from the glass doors. To anyone or anything outside those panes of glass looking in, I appear asleep. Eyes open or not. So I open my eyes. Close them again slowly. And wait.
Two minutes is a long time to think. I remember a story of Anita’s about really not wanting to look.
I really don’t.
I also do not want anything coming through those doors while I am lying quiet, facing away from them. But better he/she/it? Not know I am awake if it is coming.
So I still wait. Keep breathing like a sleeper. And wait.
