Text Fear - 1991/1992


And walking at night in the center of Milan, semi-desert and the dark and seeing meet, the unwary customer, I had a small bump in the region epigastricoduodenale that rightfully called, fear or cowardice emotional.
There are times when I love the police. And she knows it, and you wish for. You only hear the sound of my footsteps, I should have put Clark.
The moon still and white, drawing long shadows and dead-straight. No matter, we're not here to take pictures from.
Hat on his head, and light waterproof covering the gown very dark, the man who comes up to me, has little chance of being Humphrey Bogart. Hands shaking the chest anything unclear.
I can not deviate, follow me, the case dog cat is a very clear example. As long as no one escapes, nothing happens, as soon as one runs away, that one ... And just because if one escapes, he must have a good reason to be followed, otherwise escaping to do? Alone? In that case, you would simply say, runs, and if he does not follow me, I do not want to put myself to run like an idiot at two in the night to Milan, without Clark.
The moon is always motionless and white, as in the days when there were still nights of love. No matter, I continue on my way, I must not fear, fear is a smell, the feel and the wayfarers. They are worse than animals, these travelers, it is clear that they feel.
But why are they out? I would have to lock me in the house, and write on the door, I have no money, as a precautionary measure, to deter thieves and murderers. And the stranglers lonely? That cares about the money.
I should go and live in Switzerland, has never been brave enough to finally become cowards.
But the important thing now is to go forward, determined. Any flessio¬ne, could be of great use to the enemy. The next street is close and form an acute angle acute or obtuse ... does not matter. But I feel that I could reach the corner, and then ... but the enemy advances, moves faster, or is it just me?
Remember the dog and the cat, he is afraid of me. I have puntargli him like a cruiser, yes, have the air of ram, so here, it is he who deviates draws a curve. No, I tip.
We are ten meters. Shaking hands to his chest ... a big bunch of flowers, a bouquet of flowers? Those who believe they cheat? A gun, a knife, hidden among the lilies, how clever are the forces of evil.
Here it is five meters, is over four one two three ...
Ahhhh, nothing, it was only a man. A man without the slightest suspicion, he smiled at me, as if we were two people. It 's weird, I was afraid of a shadow in the night, I thought of everything, the only thing that I did not think ... it could be just that, a person.
The moon continues to be motionless and white, as in the days when there was still the man.

    This image has a hardness to it that works so well and is accentuated by the sepia presentation and shallow DOF. Great submission for the theme!
