The Need To Be Seen



The time the drunk came up to us at the bar
at the locals' casino in Vegas
and belligerently accused us of looking at him
(his approach cuing me in to the fact of his existence)
is when I realized three things:
everyone wants to be noticed; and
everyone thinks they are being observed; and
there are people all around me all the time
suffering.
