Just outside my door I could feel it in the streets. I didn’t need to look around to know there was more trash on the pavement than usual. And more shadows to hide in. I didn’t want my wife and daughter to go on ahead without me to the park. A we neared Broadway where we were going to part ways, some character showing off, let out a high pitched piercing scream resulting in laughter from his cronies. There was desperation in the air.
