MOOD: ANXIOUS by DANIELLE CORCIONE

mood: anxious
mood: waiting for your friend at the bus station
mood: wandering aimlessly while eating a Cliff bar
mood: “are you looking for Transit or Rail?”
mood: soldiers in camouflage hovering
mood: that aren’t traveling
mood: getting too hot from wearing a jacket you don’t want to take off and lose
mood: afraid of misplacing your debit card in public
mood: your friend called and she missed the train
mood: playing with your thumbs for the next half hour
mood: feeling even warmer from your jacket
mood: sitting on the floor with your bag between your legs
mood: that woman talking to herself reminds you a lot of your mother
mood: before she died
mood: when she told you large crowds are never safe
