This short poem, presented in Twine, is about the experience of walking home as a person of colour, and the fear of being seen as a monster and being attacked.
Links, here, act as punctuation, giving it the rhythm of song. So yes, it's better if it's read aloud, but it needs the player's interaction - of clicking on the link - to drive in the rhythm.
walking home uses the symbology of religion to represent the power of weapons, of always staying more dangerous than other people out there - there are lines such as "pray to the brand on its edge for protection" - but it is, ultimately, born of fear. And despite this, fatalism is everywhere - a fatalism born of weariness, born of helplessness.
It may be "just" dynamic fiction. It may not be technically spectacular. But it's powerful stuff.
It plays better when you read it aloud.

The storefront will just be a big window, the interior cloaked with dark, ornately patterned curtains. You'll have a neon sign, of course: "PAST PRESENT FUTURE."
