I’m Waiting Here (Para Siempre)
Saturday, 31st August 2013.
there’s a young girl sitting two seats behind me on the bus. she’s 17 or 18 and very beautiful, and she’s sobbing as she’s talking to her boyfriend on the phone. my Spanish isn’t good enough to get everything she’s saying, but I understand it all. – toni, she says, it was supposed to be us para siempre – forever.
she breaks down, and cries unconsolably. we can all hear her. – toni, she repeats, it was supposed to be us para siempre. it was supposed to be us forever.
