walk this way

smooth talker...street walker.

met a burly man named thad on his motor bike today.
he said he'd seen me walking the hills of la crescenta for quite some time now, but just never knew quite how to say 'hi.'

sweet, i thought, only halfway believing i'd been fed a line.

he told me he'd like to hike with me sometime.
when i told him i'm the solitary type who uses my walks as a spiritual escape to hide inside myself, he looked dejected.

not quite the blow off he was expecting, i suppose..
