Day 14: Big Bother is Watching You

Exercising dogs for government-approved hour today
From my home
On open public footpath
Dogs on lead and under control
Not a soul around
Pick-up truck
Stops on road and watches me as I walk towards it
Staring man

My mind goes nuts
Have I done something wrong?
Am I breaking some rule?

I keep going
And going
Fear grabs and will not let me breathe

He slowly drives away

Intimidating me
Pretending to be in control of me
Making me doubt myself
Making me hide
