The Man on the Beach


He was another face in the crowd, until he came into focus.

Was he a war veteran? Did he had friends or family lost in Iraq? Was he just another bum?

I shot him from a distance. On hindsight I should've went up to him and listened to what he has to say.

He sheds a tear, the weather turns moody as if to sympathize with how he's feeling beneath that tattooed skull.

I turned away, misty-eyed.
