Hey Man

Hey Man,

Can you spare some change?

Do you have a light?

I could really go for a sandwich.

I’m fucking talking to you!

Hey Man,

I think I knew you once.

Do you know Clyde?

Please say you know me too.

I’m going your way.

Why don’t we talk for a bit?

We could talk about Clyde.

I’ve got a meeting, I swear.

Hey Man,

I think I know you.

I think you want to hurt me.

That guy over there said it was true.

I think he wants to hurt me too.
