Tight pinched face. Suspicious darting eyes. Glasses hanging around her neck on a multicolored cord. Shopping bags on her wrists. Blue flats, blue shirt, blue vest. She is always looking into the car behind eyes, her eyes squinting down as she moves her head back and forth to try and see someone or something behind us. Is she following someone? Was she separated by the evening crush of people? She’s nervous and uptight and I have to fight the urge to turn around and look through the window to see who she’s looking at.
