“Who are you with?” the kid asked as I knelt over the camcorder trying to get the damn thing to stream.

“I’m with myself. I blog.”

“What do you blog about?”

I had to give that one some thought: “About the privatization of education.”

“You’re against it?”

Stupid motherfucking camera!  I replugged the power but still got the orange error light.

“Yes,” I said.

“So you interview people?”

“I film them if they want to speak.” I didn’t want to tell him that I really didn’t know what the hell I was doing, my hands shaking, my 54 year-old eyes too old to see in the dark.

“Okay,” he said vaguely, looking up the hill, down which a thousand plus cops were supposed to come (but never did; they had been hiding in the surrounding buildings all along!)

“Good luck,” I said.

He pulled the scarf up on his mouth. “You too.”

Just then the sky lit up with–what? Flares? No, someone had shot up fireworks into the sky.

I ran into the street looking south on Main.

Huge canopies of stars blooming high above us.

The red encode light lit up. I was online again, my video streaming over the internet to God knows who.

“Look at that!” I was scared. I was happy. I raised the camera, pointed it up. “Look at that!”

Below is what I shot , working backward in time.
