1. because i met him at the corner of broad and erie, smiling to the world and mumbling to the wind.

    because he told me that he doesn’t remember the last time he was photographed.

    because when i asked “where is your family”? he opened his arms, as if to embrace the world, and replied “look around”.

    because he is the reason i talk to strangers often, and the reason i no longer believe in “strangers” at all.

    because his name is “ennis”, he said, “like my mama said ‘who the f*ck even needs a d’ ”.
