Example text

Death or divorce must be their subject, I guessed as I edged closer to them, but when I got in hearing range, the man receded in the shadows, looking for his wife or mistress, leaving the woman alone and weeping.  Scusa signora I ached to say as I reached to fix it, but paralysis gripped my arm and throat. She plucked it nervously back in place on the softest marbly white skin on earth, Page 10 then walked through me, into the night. I saw, then, that I had no substance as well as no voiceI was a ghost among rich, beautiful, black and white ghosts whose sadness moved me more than my sadness at being ignored by my once loved friend.

But weary check-ins from the East must lose momentum when their knots of fear untie as killer cities shrink in rearview mirrors and their windshields fill with fields of wheat. And every Westerner must feel the urge to stop here where the big blue bowl of sky Page 41 isn't chipped by mountains around its rim and where the smog-free air is so transparent the only way to know that it exists is to steer through it when it's blowing crossways from pole to pole, filled with cranes in flight from Canada to Mexico in fall and Mexico to Canada in spring, who stay six weeks, fattening on grain before they take off into the wind again, waving their enormous wings good-bye.

Find me, instead," he grins, pointing at the hero, his twin, whose eyes are holes, whose mouth's a zero. Page 24 Ubi Sunt? " each spring when I washed my storm windows, and the deaf diva down the street, who yelled into her phone in German like Brunhilde in Die Walkiüre. Renters live in her house now. They've swept the carved cows from her mantle, making room for their beer bottles. Where's my neighbor's redbud tree whose heart-shaped leaves once masked green siding which now fills my study window?
