Boy wearing all black looks cold. He is wearing a long black coat. Under, black shirt, black pants, black underwear. Skinny stick man figure in all black, limbs like pencil markings. Boy in all black thinks he is invisible (only in the night. The sunlight makes him stand out,) so boy looks grim-faced in the morning.

“My round belly is a sign of the times,” he says, while the rest of us eat dirt.
