I wink, and there are all these people laughing everywhere. People talking smoking drinking arguing everywhere.
I blink, and they’re gone. I blink and I despair. I blink and they’re not there.
They’re just not there.
I wink, and they’re back. Lively happy alive they’re there.
I hold my breath. Hold it more. I slowly exhale. I hope and hope, I keep it in, I stay my eyes, I won’t let go.
But I blink, and they’re gone.
