I saw an old woman hunched over so much. I thought about youth. How no one should go from being young to old and distorted and uncomfortable.
I looked forward as I passed her.
I looked back when I thought she would be behind me, but I lost sight of her, unsure of where she went. Possibly ignored.
I came back to find a present on my bed. I removed all my sheets, and now I will sleep in the cold, until I can do laundry again.
