shark appearing
young guy
stops me and
says "aren't you the artist L.N.
I am. My answer
you look like L.N. How do
you know you are?
New "I used to live here
I know that but how do I know
you're (really) L.N.?" I'm
ready to move on
as he retorts //

Do you have any identification?
As I move
away I hear
him say
I guess maybe
you are - you
sure look like
L.N.
Then nice meeting you
