Stranger Danger - Poem by Adryan Barnathan

He appeared again today
a few years later
and a little too late
a bit grayer, tall and lean
eye glassed, expressionless
I felt him
somehow he knew
as I walked about
feeling those
magnified eyes
burning through
my skin
In the windows
I saw him again
following me
intrigued somehow
by my being around
I felt investigated
sorted out
my heart pounded
and I caught myself
a few years later
and a little too late
for pure
physical attraction.
