Eye contact. Starting someone in the eye. Sometimes I am curious why someone is staring at me, so I stare back at them. Do they want to fuck me, fight me, think I am the scum of the Earth or are they lost within themselves and unaware that they are even looking at me? Those tense several seconds of eye contact are one of the few intimate moments that occur between strangers. Several years ago I was staring at a baby in a stroller on the subway and that little baby's stare was so powerful that I couldn't take it anymore and had to look away. But you better be aware of who you are staring back at and where you are, sometimes the wrong stare can get you killed.
