Time Warp Conditions
by Amy D Lux
Pete was in the corner eating all of my Nutella.
3 of us laying in corner to regroup but the crowd came in.
They strangely crowded the tiny stage even though the large hall was vacant.
Went to the same place in NYC where the GPS always freaks out, probably because of the time warp, the altitude too high, the snow, the train coming, too many people. I’ve been there before so I knew when I started walking a certain direction that it would lead to empty dark confusing woods and it’s really hard to get out so I stopped, turned around, and thought about how I could get help. When I turned around there was a little boy too close and out of control with his actions and he spun into something on my hip that made a smacking sound against something on him. Metal? He started to cry and I asked if he was ok but they were very absorbed with themselves and didn’t hear me.
