Another Man

SUDDENLY
ANOTHER
MAN’S
PRESENCE
WAS
FELT
AROUND
ME

THE
FEELING
CAME
UN
EXPECTEDLY

OUT
OF
NO
WHERE

IT
FILLED
THE
PHYSICAL
AND
MENTAL
SPACE
ALL
AROUND

I
LOOKED
LEFT
AND
RIGHT

TAKEN
BY
SURPRISE

NO
BODY
THERE

ANOTHER
MAN’S
PRESENCE
WAS
CLEAR
AND
IRRESISTIBLE

I
WALKED
THE
ROOMS
LOOKING
FOR
ANOTHER
MAN

SPACE
WAS
FILLED
WITH
ANOTHER
MAN’S
PRESENCE

UN
KNOWN
AND
NEW
BUT
CLEAR
FEELING

OVER
WHELMING
MY
SENSES

AS
OUR
17
YEAR
OLD
SON
WAS
SLOWLY
GOING
DOWN
THE
STAIRS

WITH
LARGE
STEPS
AND
STRIDES

INTO
THE
WORLD

AND
A
WONDERING
SMILE
OF
AN
ADULT

ON
A
YOUNG
AND
UNSHAVED
FACE
