Something shiny in the shadows strikes my eyes. Peering through
the lampposts’ haze, I recognise the man I’ve dubbed Tinfoil leaning
against a tree just off the path. I call him Tinfoil because that’s what
he always wears: tinfoil hat, coat, and fingerless gloves. I often see
him on the weekends in town, yelling out predictions and profanities
at passers-by. Most people give him a wide birth – especially since
he once told a man he was heading for a fall, and the next thing I
knew, that same man was in a wheelchair – however, I’ve never
really bothered. Tinfoil never offends me in any way and usually
fails to notice my existence, keeping his head down and his crinkling
hands inside his torn pockets.
I move closer, preparing to give my usual nod on the off chance
he looks my way, but stop when his head twists in my direction. His
eyes widen with that crazed look I’ve seen him give others, and he
jumps into my path.
‘I see the light,’ he gasps, ‘shining bright. Walk through it.’
I furrow my brow.
‘I see the light!’ he cries, ‘shining bright. Walk through it.’
My heart pounds as I stumble to get around him but he keeps
leaping in my way.
‘I see the light. Shining bright. Walk through it.’
Oh dear. A crazy person is telling me to walk into the light, this
can’t be good. I pretend to step one way, and when he follows,
quickly step another, finally getting around him. His gloved hand
grips my wrist, the folded foil poking at my skin.
‘Get off!’ I exclaim.
‘Tonight free.’ Tinfoil leans close, so close I can see a spit bubble
bobbing from one lip to the other as they meet. ‘Tomorrow a cage.’
I gulp, twisting my wrist, but he’s surprisingly strong for such a
‘Tonight free. Tomorrow a cage.’ His eyes leave mine and lower
to the ground. ‘Tonight free. Tomorrow a cage.’
