“Hello, I’m me.”

Drawing someone; a stranger, in your notebook and having them sit beside you the next day. Feels somewhat perpendicular.

You are just as tan-suede as I had imagined, sir. Age bracket between 50-60; spot on. Your hair reveling itself to be two-shades darker than your skin, something that was unapparent to me, within the biro drawing.

It somehow caused him to camouflage within himself. A visible-hidden man. Kept together with a sky-blue buttoned going-out shirt. Fringe leveled off to the side, coinciding with defined strength of jaw. Combed; obviously, Hair-Sprayed; probably. Wide- flat teeth. Teeth I just wanted to toothpick; for no other reason than the slight antiqueness gathering towards the edge of enamel. Nothing alarming, just mere curiosity. See if any of it gave-way, let-go of the gums. It was a smile that shone of excelled performance within the workplace. A real give-it-a-go attitude. At one point I swear the smile went ‘ting’ and a flicker of light bounced off the tooth surface. A well-groomed man with undercurrents of serial killer.

“You must have a firm grasp on the human condition, though”, I let on.

“These day’s it’s all about having that piece of paper; done a degree”, he said.

He didn’t seem to be jarred with my comment, which could have been interpreted as ‘your old’. And he could hold a gaze. But at his age, this was expected. Within the gaze; my eye’s communicated with his. And in eye talk mine said, ‘your slightly creepy, I will most definitely write about you tonight.’

“See you next week”, my mouth-talk expressed.

Featured image is not man described. This is a fiber-glass mock-man. He is not real. Although a very similar rendition of drawing-turned man. Quite glad to have found this amongst my iPhone archives.

  1. That looks like Prince William, the grandson of England’s queen.

    “You must have a firm grasp on the human condition.” – what a marvellous compliment Jessie; no one has ever said that to me. XD

  2. “A well-groomed man with undercurrents of serial killer.” – sounds like at least half my followers. *winks*. The ‘mock-man’ – is indeed a mock Prince William. It’s all so creepy-tastic dearie *laughs*.

      Im beginning to think characteristics of serial killers are merely just people, who possibly eat cereal or granola. They are fearless super hero’s , whereby internet stalking is free for all too see, paving the way for future humans to say ‘its ok to be curious and wear a bib that says so, and show others love like youve known em for years’ hahaha what a tangent

      How waz ze eclipse? Xx

      • Everyone should wear a bib anyway. That’s a given. And ideally some Spatz. The eclipse was magnificent! A connection to the runny hot star spangled planet of sun God, winking at sonmi. Cheeky sod that he is. xx

      it’s a very nice angle to peer out from, it provides quite lovely perspectives

      thanks for reading !

  3. Awesome. Love the disclaimer – very important. I have never wanted to toothpick the teeth of a plastic stranger but I have had a strong urge, whilst mindfully watering the dying orchids I keep at work as a Wellness Activity, to dash the jug of ice-cold water into a colleague’s face. Not any colleague in particular. Nothing alarming, just mere curiosity. Jo x
