The Tourist
K.S. 6/5/12
I walked with you,
You close in stride,
I talked with you,
At times without words,
I shared with you,
For the things that I needed,
Yet sharing elsewhere,
For pieces of the whole,
Handicapped by space and time,
We view, experience,
On a road to…
We’re tourists.

The manuscript Blue Lines is the fictional coming of age narrative of a young California woman Key Yemaya Walker, and her 2 year growing journey through school, love, and life period piece, written by Kenneth Suffern, Jr., taking place at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill between the years of 1997 – 1998. Loosely based on true events, and experiences during that time, told through the eyes and voice of the main female protagonist, a freshman first attending the school.
