Example text

And enter the dark cavern of my living room.  An idle query, for she knows the calendar's supreme indifference: that the rare good luck of love is something out of time. Yet she dreads the inevitable moment a lover asks, When's your birthday? Later, she won't want the gifts lying around, so she likes to whisper, half believing it herself, It must be today. Page 38 Room 13 Night falls like a final blanket in imagined layers, a darkness stifling two minds, or a city; the lights flicker like thoughts.

So he'll be afraid someday, and alone, if now his loins can claim the greening world without stint, his good lust rippling like gold and all his own.  There's a sense of privilege, hushed and remote. When he retires alone and lies rigid, arms held to sides, his exquisite profile might have been etched in stone. And there he waits in his deliberate beauty for sleep to come forth like a suitor to spirit him away, forever and ever. and what were they doing in this place, exactly?  . and so they pour themselves into a taxi and they talk in low childlike murmurs all the way home.

The greening world I once considered far too opulent to mind the unsown seed, the withered stalk, has paused now to wonder where the garden went, while I'm sufficient as the black dress and pearls I never wore, and as certainly in fashion.  And death comes for the wallflowers, too, in their season.  So keep your pity, stranger. My bed was narrow, but now you lie in it. Page 16 Sexual Outlaw This is the grim season and we must take, he decides, whatever we dare of passion, as whose fate is not bloody and bare?
